Redstarts ‘bob’ in a very robin-like manner, but spend little time at ground level. Puffins’ short wings are adapted for swimming with a flying technique under water. In the air, they beat their wings rapidly (up to 400 times per minute) in swift flight, often flying low over the ocean’s surface. Swallows are extremely agile in flight and spend most of their time on the wing. Reaching lengths of up to 11 metres, Basking Sharks are the largest fish in British waters. Gannet pairs may remain together over several seasons. Dolphins are extraordinarily intelligent animals who also display culture, something which was long-believed to be unique to humans, although now recognised in various species. A Touch of Class.

Food Chain - Kid's Corner

Everytime animals do something (run, jump) they use energy to do so. Animals get energy from the food they eat, and all living things get energy from food. Plants use sunlight, water and nutrients to get energy (in a process called photosynthesis). Energy is necessary for living beings to grow. A food chain shows how each living thing gets food, and how nutrients and energy are passed from creature to creature. A simple food chain could start with grass, which is eaten by rabbits.
