In the morning we focussed on birds, this included different types of birds, different coloured feathers and the sounds that they make. We went in two different hides so were able to observe garden birds and wetland birds. The children inspected some bird's nests and then made their own nests. They were so enthusiastic, they really listened to the instructions from the trip leader and made them with twigs on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.
After lunch we took part in a minibeast hunt, we had an information card and identified the creatures we found. In total we found 11 different minibeasts, We were very proud of ourselves!
The children's behaviour was amazing. They were well-mannered, polite and inquisitive. We can't to take them on another trip!
