Brooke Priory School performing “150th chick” Song at Lyndon Centre!

Brooke Priory came along to the Lyndon center for a very special performance, they gave their beautiful voices to a song dedicated to the hatching of the 150th chick, written and composed by Music teacher at the school, Mrs Grantham. It told the story of Manton Bay and the Osprey project to date, and celebrating the milestone chick to hatch this year. The song is very catchy and we love the fact that everyone was in wellies for the occasion!
