The sunny weather made perfect conditions for pond-dipping.

Pond-dippers

This Water Boatman was amongst today's catch. Other finds in the ponds included Great Diving Beetle larvae, tadpoles, pond snails and cased Caddis Fly larvae.

After lunch all the children built a human tree and learnt how a tree works! The outer layer was the 'serious bark' to protect the tree from invading insects!

A fun day was had by all.

The yellow Flag Iris is taking the place of the pinkish white Bogbean which has now finished flowering in the Scrapes.
