A GROUP of feathered friends made a flying visit to a Scarborough school to help bring the children’s studies to life.

The birds of prey from Park Rose Potteries at Carnaby, near Bridlington, were brought in to do a presentation for youngsters at Northstead Primary School.

The children have been studying nocturnal animals in class and the visit linked in with this topic.

Teacher Tracey Wardill said: “The birds did a flying display and the keepers talked about them and answered the children’s questions.

“It made the subject real for the children and they really enjoyed it.”

Nearly 80 children aged six and seven years old were involved in the activity.

The birds of prey included owls, a buzzard and hawks.
