Pupils in Kilgraston’s Preparatory School were introduced to some new friends this week – albeit friends with whiskers, feathers and claws! As part of their project to learn about all kinds of animals, the children were visited by the RSBP and the Scottish SPCA, who were able to introduce them to some familiar – and some not so familiar – creatures.
Kate Walters from the RSPB’s Sea Eagle project introduced the children to these wonderful birds, with the aid of puppets and cardboard tube ‘binoculars’, and the children learned about the lifestyle and habitat of the UK’s largest bird of prey. Sea eagles, which have wing span of 2.5 meters, became extinct in Britain during the early 1900s and were successfully re-introduced to Scotland in 1975.
Scottish SPCA Educator Lauren also visited Kilgraston to teach the children about caring for all kinds of animals. Pupils learnt what to do if they find an injured wild animal, how to care for their own pets, and how to look after animals that may visit their garden.
Thank you to both of our visitors for teaching us so much about the creatures they care for!Back to News
