Gayhurst’s school Eco Club have signed up to a campaign called ‘What’s under your feet?’ which aims to discover what’s living in the soil beneath the school grounds. Last Thursday, the Eco Club dug up a patch of soil in the school field and conducted a survey of the invertebrates living there, identifying and measuring those that we found. We discovered 5 worms and a caterpillar (considerably less than we expected!) Alongside other schools that are taking part, we submitted our data in order to help scientists at the British Trust for Ornithology understand the relationship between climate, the availability of invertebrates and how this impacts UK bird numbers and their migration patterns. We look forward to repeating the exercise in June to see what we find then!
