On the way to talk about electricity and eagles and why the two don’t mix, we dropped in for a surprise visit to Lenah Valley Primary School. When they realised that James wasn’t with me there was a ripple of disappointment but the class recovered to give us an insight into how they’ve been using the expedition in their classroom.

Electric Eagle, No Thanks
It’s the first time I’ve been able to do a school visit during an expedition so I was excited to see how the other side of this adventure was going.... the learning part!
The class were in the middle of measuring and comparing wing spans of our two eagles when I poked my head around the door. The students had printed workbooks and have been doing some of the activities. But, and it’s pretty clear now, their highlight has been getting to know scientist and, yes I’ll make the call, emerging eagle superstar, James Pay.
It fills my adventurous heart with joy to see students seeing a researcher as a normal person just like them. Job done.... except we have to fly down to Melaleuca tomorrow and get ready for the SURVEY. Hope you’re preparing too.
