Year three children at Golden Valley Primary School have been taking part in a national bird-watching campaign.
Charly Crump and her fellow RSPB volunteers came in to work with the pupils as part of the National Big Schools’ Birdwatch.
This year, the wildlife survey started on January 3 and finished on Friday.
The RSPB experts provided binoculars and counting sheets and helped the students in Nailsea to spot the birds that are found within the school grounds.
Deputy headteacher Claire Jenkins said the event was a huge success.
She said: “The children had a fantastic time seeing the different birds.
“They were surprised by the results especially when a cormorant flew over.
“The volunteers then stayed on in the afternoon to work with year one helping them to spot the different habitats found within our school.”
