Marcus ran workshops in the Primary School de Fakkel, in Utrecht with 120 children. The children learnt about bird migration from an ornithologist, they made costumes and banners to welcome the swifts, swallows, cuckoos and chiffchaffs to the Netherlands. This activity culminated in a parade through the train station, shopping centre and corporate business area of Utrecht.
