Children help May and Gove identify birds in wetland centre visit


Theresa May used a pair of binoculars as she set out her vision for protecting the environment.

The Prime Minister went birdwatching with a group of primary school pupils to mark the launch of the 25-year strategy.

She was joined by Environment Secretary Michael Gove for the visit to the London Wetland Centre.

The two politicians were helped to identify birds by a group of children from Lowther Primary School, near the wetland centre in Barnes, south-west London.

Mrs May exclaimed "Gosh, there's lots" as she surveyed the bird life, while Mr Gove was impressed as the children told him they had seen a peregrine falcon.
