Enquiry desk overlooking the gardenThis weekend 25-26 January is the Royal Society of the Protection of  Birds (RSPB) Big Garden Birdwatch which gets all of us out counting the number of birds we see in our gardens or parks.

This is a great thing to do for our residential learners at Hillcroft College as it gets you not only to test out your numeracy skills but also to recognise different species of birds.

The Hillcroft garden is a fantastic spot for birds. Our Learning Resources Centre which overlooks the garden enables us to see robins, wood pigeons, green woodpeckers, blackbirds, magpies, wrens and blue and great tits on a regular basis.

All you need to do is pick an hour and register the maximum number of each kind of bird that you see within that hour. Don’t count ones flying overhead. Children will enjoy taking part too. You can register what you’ve spotted on the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch page.

How about taking your maths skills further? Find out about numeracy courses coming up at Hillcroft on the English and Maths link on our Courses page.
