Reception pupils have a quacking time at bird reserve

Published on 20/06/19

It may have been nice weather for ducks, but the rain didn’t stop Charles Darwin pupils from having a fantastic day out at a north Norfolk nature reserve.

The Reception class visited Pensthorpe Natural Park in Fakenham, home to hundreds of species of birds, insects, and other wildlife, on Thursday, June 13.

The children fed some of the reserve’s resident ducks and were tickled pink to meet the 49-stong flock of flamingos.

They also found out about the vital role played by Pensthorpe’s many insects in pollinating plants and flowers.

Teacher Miss Burt said: “The weather didn’t stop us – we had an amazing day!”
