Freddy Crowned Winner of our Bird Photography Competition

RT @kingshallsport: Cross country/ outdoor pursuit/ treasure hunt/ orienteering… whatever it is called, the pupils had a brilliant time… https://t.co/PDUAPqm9I9 - 12 hours ago

Coinciding with the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, Mrs Cole, as well as encouraging her Year 7 scientists to take part, launched a bird photography competition open to all pupils. 

Bird photography is not easy. Birds as subjects seem to fall into two categories; fast moving, or shy, and good at hiding! The closer you get the more likely they are to fly away. Like any discipline, the more you understand about your subject, the better your images will be. So for our pupils to have captured these stunning images is truly remarkable and demonstrates their clear connection and understanding. Mrs Cole and her panel of judges were thoroughly impressed with the standard of entries.

Shortlisting to their top 5, the images were then posted to our Facebook page, with invitations to our school community to vote for their favourite.

Scooping first place was Freddy W, with a beautiful image of a robin. The woodpecker image taken by Taleb A was runner-up.

Commenting, Mrs Cole said: "Thank you to all of the pupils for taking part in the Science Department’s competition. All the science teachers were so impressed by the standard of the images we received. Congratulations to Freddy, a well-deserved winner!

Well done to everyone for entering and to the shortlisted top five, and our very deserving winner.
