Exploring, Learning and Discovering

Sunday, October 15th 2017

Autumn has brought a splash of vibrant colour to the reserve.

An enthusiastic group of young nature detectives headed to the outdoor classroom to see what they could discover in the Autumn sunshine.

Heading out

They began their morning by playing a searching game to get their 'nature detective eyes' working.

Searching

They found the bright animals easier to find than the dark camouflaged ones, this was lots of fun!

Finding worms

They then set out on a proper minibeast safari and found lots of real animals to study.

On the forest floor were beautiful fungi as well as plenty of invertebrates.

The children found millipedes, harvestmen spiders, earthworms (aplenty) and this stunning shield bug which was well camouflaged!

Walking back they made their own 'human millipede' and discovered that it was quite tricky to walk in a straight line!

Thank you to all of the intrepid mini explorers for being so keen and enthusiastic and to their parents for their support.
