Pupils at Lynn’s Fairstead Primary School are pictured as they swapped the classroom for the garden to back a charity’s drive to track Britain’s domestic bird populations.

The school has been participating in the RSPB’s Big Schools Birdwatch programme and higher level teaching assistant Adele Jenkinson said: “The children have really taken this activity to heart and have thoroughly enjoyed learning about birds and their habitats.”

The school is currently developing its own wildlife area and pond which officials hope will attract even more species to the site.
