Free woodcock sponsorship for schools

Woodcock in handWhat aspects of nature fascinated you as a child? Imagine following the journey of a bird as it makes its way from the UK or Ireland, across Europe, perhaps as far afield as western Russia.

We offer a free woodcock sponsorship to any school so that their pupils can share in this fascinating experience, tracking a woodcock as it migrates across Europe and back again, sometimes even to the very same field.

The free school woodcock pack includes a certificate of sponsorship, factsheets and regular email updates about the progress of the school’s chosen woodcock.

Teachers are also able to access a series of lesson plans, providing them with the guidance to make the best use of our resources about the migration of woodcock across Europe, making it easier for teachers to utilise those resources in a way that meets the demands of the National Curriculum.

These resources, produced by the National Gamekeepers’ Organisation Educational Trust, help students to learn about the woodcock’s life cycle, habitat and migration routes and encourages students to follow individual satellite-tagged birds as they fly through the countries of Europe.
