Our class took a trip to Booterstown Marsh armed with our binoculars to get a closer look at some of the different types of birds that dwell there.
On Monday 26th April 4th Class went on a short field trip to Booterstown Marsh to discover the different types of birds that dwell there. Before we left we had a discussion on why the marsh was like a bird's airport with plenty of them coming and going throughout the year. We looked at some birds like the Little Egret and Heron who are resident there throughout the year, while other birds like the Knot and Turnstone stay here during the winter months. Other birds like the Dunlin are passing migrants who stop here on a short stay before moving onto other destinations.

Curious to learn more the boys were given a birds each to research and present to the class. We all learned about different birds found locally and the importance of preserving this unique location for generations to come. Finally we collated all the information the boys found into a booklet. (see image above)
