August Antics

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

Today we held the final summer August Antics holiday activity for children. We took five children down to the pond dipping platforms to see what we could find lurking beneath the surface. Amongst other things we found lots of Sticklebacks and tiny Pond Skaters. The rain cleared just in time so we all managed to stay dry and have good fun.

Brian has been at it again searching the reserve high and low for different fungi. He found this Alder Tongue which is aptly named as it grows on Alder trees and as you can see has more than a fair resemblance to a tongue.
