Corballa National School had the privilege of the expertise of Heritage in Schools nature specialist Michael Bell on November 3rd last, where he impressed us with his collection of finds from seashore visits and strolls in the woods. There were skulls of, amongst other things, rabbits and foxes along with bones of whales and a pine martin specimen.

Each class then took a trip with Michael around the environs of the school where we looked at biodiversity, habitats, sources of animal and birds foods, hedgehog houses, minibeasts, took leaf rubbings and dodged the odd shower! It was a very informative and enjoyable day for the pupils of Corballa NS getting to know more about the wonders of nature on our doorsteps. Thank you Michael!
