August Antics

Wednesday, August 29th 2012

During this month there have been a series of weekly family fun sessions called August Antics. Activities have ranged from minibeast hunting and pond dipping to learning about flowers and moths. Over fifty children have taken part and more than £100 has been raised for the reserve. Thank you to Elizabeth who has planned and run these events and spent a huge amount of time making worksheets for the children to take home. Todays group found all kinds of creatures in the ponds including an eft!

Staff and holiday makers from Low Mill Outdoor Centre visited and enjoyed a guided walk around the reserve.

Sightings today include dragonflies (during the few sunny spells) and this cheeky Heron. Captions please via the comments!

Finally, a special mention to Tony and Mike who worked out in the heavy rain showers to repair a gate and pull birch in the short time they had left after looking for the puncture repair kits (that were in their place all the time) and fixing the wheelbarrows!
