Eco-Club and glorious weather

Saturday, September 26th 2009

Today we had the Eco-Club meeting and the weather was glorious. Elizabeth led 11 children and their parents across the moor and through the plantation. They were learning about tracks and signs and found pine cones which had been eaten by squirrels, spiders and their nests and various other beasties. Raymond came along to help and had a good time too.

This beautiful web was seen on our walk through the middle of the reserve.

Spider's web

This afternoon Northallerton Beaver Scouts came for an autumn walk and mini-beast hunt. They found shield bugs, caterpillars and plenty of spiders.

Also today Phil came with two youth offenders and worked on weeding out the silver birch up near the plantation.
