Being Wildlife Detectives

Wednesday, August 9th 2017

Today we looked for evidence of some of our more elusive wildlife and tried to spot what they’d left behind at our Tracks and Signs event for families. We saw lots! Including footprints of water voles, deer hoof-prints and mole hills; we saw small trails from voles and even smaller trails from beetles and leaf-mining moths. There were leftovers from meals: nuts broken by squirrels, apples eaten by water voles, cones eaten by mice and by squirrels and even a pile of feathers left from the meal of a hawk!

We took casts of footprints to take home…

…and played a game where we set trails for each other to follow!

Family fun and there’s more to come – check out our events pages here.
