Grab your notebook and binoculars for this inspiring virtual author event as part of RSPB's Big Schools' Birdwatch!

M. G. Leonard is a keen amateur birdwatcher and award-winning author. Her 2021 book, Twitch, is a thrilling adventure exploring friendship, the genius and beauty of birds, and the endless rewards of having a relationship with nature. In this event, she will take you on a journey of birding discovery, sharing tips on how to spot birds where you live and perhaps even inspiring you to get up super early and listen to the dawn chorus – she will definitely get you to take The Twitcher's Oath!

Also joining us for this special event is Alyssa Parker from RSPB, who will tell us about everything there is to know about birds you can find in your garden or playground and how your school can take part in the Wild Challenge Award Scheme.
