A trip down to the beach in the morning resulted in 6 Grey Plover - a new bird for this location, plus Ringed Plover, Sanderling, Dunlin, Redshank, Oystercatcher, Black-headed, Common, Herring and Great Black-backed Gulls, and a pair of possible juvenile Eider Ducks out at sea; whilst the grounds unearthed Treecreeper, Redwing, Mistle Thrush, Stock Dove and Goldcrest. In the aviary the class were able to see features of Pintail, Wigeon, Mandarin & Carolina Duck they wouldn't be able to observe in the wild in the UK.
