It was a lovely sunny start to this years Wildlife Watch. We had great fun in our Recycling themed session with activities based on how humans and animals recycle, and how natural resources can be recycled too! ♻️We did lots of running around to keep warm and got crafty making woodland faces too! Thank you to Friends of Holywells Park and Holywells Park who let us collect wood for your fire and and warm up a touch! ☀️❄️
Great fun was had today getting crafty for our Christmas Craft session! We used treasure maps to find the hidden Christmas coins, decorated the trees with 3 different types of festive bird feeders and finished the session off with making a Wildlife Watch den! If you'd like to join us next year, then meet us at the stable blocks, Holywells Park, on the 14th of January 10 - 12pm. We wish you a Merry Christmas and hope to see you next year!
Us wildlife watchers weren't put off by the rain today having great fun building our giant mini beast hotel! We made the bottom nice and cosy by stuffing it with straw and leaves
We had a great time getting gruesome today whilst dissecting our owl pellets. We had lots of fun identifying the different bones and skulls, finding out what creatures the owls had for tea! If you would like to join us next time, meet us at the stable blocks, Holywells park on the 12th of November for our next session! We hope to see you there!
Wildlife Watch picnic with a twist! Quite often when enjoying a picnic we are visited by certain creatures that have earnt themselves a bad reputation. We will be doing some fun activities based on these creatures such as wasps and ants and learning that they are not only really important within ecosystems but also not as bad as we first thought! What's more, we will be learning about how other animals in the park eat and of course, a picnic wouldn't be a picnic without a yummy snack. We will make sure we have time to fit in a biscuit or two!
We hope that you can join us on the 12th of August at 10.00am to 12.00pm at Holywells Park's Stable blocks. We hope to see you there!
