IT’S not every day you spot a splendid bird like this enjoying a lunch break in the schoolyard.

This harrier hawk had popped into Hermitage School in Wapping as part of Science Week, together with more of his feathered friends.

Pupils had a chance to learn about bird life and meet the hawk and several owls which were also brought to the school by wildlife conservation experts.

Headteacher Abdul-Hayee Murshad said: “The children were really puzzled by he owls as they did not realise they were so big. Some of the children even had the hawk sitting on their shoulders for photos.”
