Chicks, Creepy Crawlies, Ponds and Poems

Monday, May 22nd 2017

This morning started with some cute encounters: First a pheasant spotted wandering around near our workshop with her clutch of chicks…

…then a brief foray for some of our licensed bird ringers to give rings to a nest of tawny owlets and to this lovely nest of robins found by Leanne over the weekend.

While some of the bird ringers continued with nest box checks, our day continued with the arrival of a year 4 class from Leyburn CP School: a lively and enthusiastic bunch!

We explored our ponds…

…searched for mini-beasts…

…and wrote nature poems while taking a look at habitats.

Some great poems and a busy day for all!
