Gruffalo class bird spotting – Woodpeckers

This morning on our walk to Forest School, Gruffalo class stopped to listen quietly to see what we could hear.

At first we could hear lots of birds singing, then the longer we listened for, the more we could hear, and soon we could hear a tapping noise on the trees.

All of the children were very good at keeping quiet, and we showed thumbs up each time we heard the sound. It was like an animal was knocking on the trees.

We talked about how it was probably a woodpecker. However we didn’t get to see what it looked like, we could only hear the sound.

  1. Robert says “I love Forest school” he’s been looking carefully up in the trees to try to spot a woodpecker when we’ve been out trying hard to see or hear one πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Robert, I’m glad you enjoy coming to Forest School πŸ™‚
      Good to hear you are looking carefully when walking through the woods, you never know what you might see or hear!
      Please let us know if you find anything exciting!
