Last year we went to a place called Pasvik which is on the south side of the Varanger Fjord on the border with Russia. We had local school children again visit us and we were pleasantly surprised when the Vestre Jakobselv Skole children and teachers came to see us again and had driven about 150km to get there.

They stayed a couple of nights and on their last day the teacher told us the children each evening after we left the ringing site had been doing rehearsals together and they had something to show us. They acted out a wonderful performance of bird ringing. It was amazing the detail they had learnt, understood and performed. This video shows what happened. Their English was perfect, a credit to the Norwegian education system, I hope you enjoy it.
