Bonfire Cookery!

Saturday, October 31st 2015

The weather this week has been less than kind for outdoor activities, but our last Eco Club of the year was still and fine and dry!  Even the sun came out.

Autumn continues to make the reserve beautiful.  Mirror like, the lake reflected the colours.

Blue sky could also be seen!

A walk around parts of the reserve took place on our way to the bonfire.  Children collected seeds to try to grow at home.  Deciduous and evergreen trees were discussed and amazingly there were still some insects around, including a tiny shield bug, a green leaf beetle, and the Gorse Seed Weevils were still in the Gorse seed pods, although a tad damp!  Common Darters took to the wing.

Volunteers at Foxglove have a multitude of skills and cooking was on show today.  Matt built a fire of just the correct size and heat to do the cooking. 

The fire

Potatoes, apples, bananas, bannocks and twister dough were all prepared and transported to the fire for cooking.  The children arrived just as the potatoes were ready to eat.  Cut logs made ideal seats.

Twister dough was cooked after being wrapped around a long stem of willow.

Everyone had a right royal feast! 

A huge thank you to everyone who helped today.
