Two little blackbirds sitting on a branch...

The wildlife club were given a very rare experience this week.

Mrs Greenhough has been hand rearing (with Poppy and Oliver's help) two abandonned baby blackbirds. They have been fed cat food through a tiny syringe! On Friday, they were ready to fledge.

At the end of our lunch time break, we gathered quietly near the pond and the two birds were very carefully placed on one of the lower branches of a tree. We watched and waited as they adapted to their new habitat and after a short while they began to peck at insects on the tree's bark.

Then...having sat for a while, one of the two decided it was time to fly and before we knew it, it had taken its first flight...the other, we hoped would soon follow.

Magical moments in our natural world seen first hand! Is there anything better?
