About this Event

Super Starlings for Home Educated Children (aged 5-12 years)

Thursday 5 December 2019

14:00-16:00

Price: £5.50 per child. Accompanying adults free.

Booking essential. Please note booking fees apply.

Have you ever marvelled at a starling murmuration? Join us at RSPB Ham Wall to learn about the fascinating lives of these charismatic birds as they gather in massive flocks for their evening flyby above the reedbeds on the reserve before they settle into roost for the night. The session will connect children to nature and science, and help them develop new skills for the outdoors.

Working in partnership the RSPB and Natural England provide outdoor learning at the Avalon Marshes near Glastonbury. This wetland landscape in the Somerset Levels teems with wildlife: bitterns, otters, water voles, eels and the largest wintering roost of starlings in the UK. You can see an outline of the programme on our website http://www.rspb.org.uk/schoolvisits . RSPB Avalon Marshes has the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.
