South Otterington is bird friendly! We welcome birds into the area by using delicious bird food. They have their very own feeding station outside earth class hung with nijer seed, fat balls, mixed seed and bird butter balls made by the children at forest school. There’s bird butter balls hung all around the school as well. In the pre-school garden there are seed feeders as well. I love twitching (bird watching) at home and school. At school I have seen great tits, robins, house sparrows, pigeons, doves, blackbirds and many more! At home I have feeders containing peanuts, fat balls, mixed seed, flaxseed, suet pellets and dried mealworms. This attracts bird such as great tits, blue tits, long-tailed tits, coal tits, robins, starlings, blackbirds, house sparrows, greenfinches and goldfinches. The pictures contain some of my favourites.
