JUNE: BIRDS & BUGS
We had 7 children (Holly, Menuo and Ruduo, Nils, Ruby, Clementine and Anya the vicar’s daughter). Jane and Tim were there and two mums stayed too. To start with we looked at some patterned feathers, tried to work out how they ‘zip’ up, and drew them. Ruby brought an abandoned robin’s nest complete with old eggs (she donated it to Nature Club).
Tim’s game on bird migration was great fun and we learned a lot. Some birds make amazing journeys. We walked through the long grass to the Cat and Dog pond, looking for bugs en route.There were some huge tadpoles and we spotted lots of baby frogs. Tim identified some moths for us. Then back for refreshments and more feather sketching and bug identification. Time seemed to fly by.
