One of the birds that I encounter on the long and frequent walks and rambles in the area that surrounds our base in heart of the Kent countryside is the Yaffle - more commonly known as the Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis). This year I have been fortunate to watch and photograph a brood being reared at our farm site in the village of Egerton which is between Ashford and Maidstone.

A recent purchase of a secondhand SIGMA 170-500mm F5-6.3 APO lens for our Canon EOS 40D digital SLR camera that we use for photographing both flora and fauna led to an interesting evening watching the local jackdaws.

"Year 5 took part in a ‘Badger Bush Craft’ workshop. This was a whole day of practical activities led by Phil Brown, a specialist in outdoor learning. Following this a number of children together with their families were invited to take part in a Saturday workshop to learn survival skills, building shelters, lighting fires etc. This was part of an extended services project."
