From Witches Butter Fungi to Badger Latrines the students explored their local environment and put into practice all of the skills they honed during their Eagle Schools 'Eagle ID' sessions.

Crossbills, Great Spotted Woodpeckers and other woodland species were heard in the canopy but eluded good views. However, one student, Chris, managed to find an old Sparrowhawk nest!
