This week has been a very exciting week – I’ve been helping out at the BCN Wildlife Trust’s Nature Explorer sessions!
There were two sessions this week and I’d thoroughly recommend coming along to the sessions next week – Wednesday and Friday at 10am – Midday. We go pond dipping, sweep netting and birdwatching!
Here are some of our pond dipping finds this week:
Other finds included pond snails, water scorpions, small fish, dragonfly eggs, caddis flies, water mites and plenty of water boatmen of all sizes!
A couple of finds from sweep netting:
Finally, while bird watching we saw lots of geese, a little egret, lesser black backed gulls and these great crested grebes:
Some other finds on the reserve this week:
I’m looking forward to Nature Explorers next week!
