Our Trip to Ballinafad Wildlife Centre 

We went to Ballinafad Wildlife Centre.  We learned about birds on the whiteboard and we learned about the birds names.  We went up to the bird-hide and studied the birds.  We were going to listen to the birds but there was nothing around so we listened to toy birds.  We went outside and used binoculars.  We saw some crows.  We went inside.  We stuck seeds onto pictures of birds.  We went home.  It was a great time.
