This morning, children from Year 5 and 6 attended the Science Christmas Lecture at the Octagon Centre. The key speaker this year was Tim Birkhead, an expert in ornithology, who has worked with the likes of David Attenborough. He presented a really interesting lecture about birds and their behaviour. There were live demonstrations involving owls, eagles and hawks. Afterwards, we got to meet them up close, and their handler answered our questions. There were also various demonstrations where we looked at different eggs, how hummingbirds feed and how plastic pollution effects wildlife.
Please have a look at the photographs from the day.
