The sunny weather made perfect conditions for pond-dipping.


This Water Boatman was amongst today's catch. Other finds in the ponds included Great Diving Beetle larvae, tadpoles, pond snails and cased Caddis Fly larvae.

After lunch all the children built a human tree and learnt how a tree works! The outer layer was the 'serious bark' to protect the tree from invading insects!

A fun day was had by all.

First thing this morning, Elizabeth was watched by this Roe Deer!
