Richmond Methodist School Visit

Friday, June 5th 2015

A Key Stage One group from Richmond Methodist School visited the reserve today. The students' three activities throughout the day included pond dipping, where a Leech was caught, and during one session they were able to see a predator in action as a Great Diving Beetle Larva caught a Stickleback.

During the minibeast session they learnt about camouflage and the benefits of this for both predators and prey. On the habitat walk they compared the many different habitats on the reserve and discovered what creatures might live in each.

We hope you all enjoyed your day with us and will be back soon with your families.
