Puddles were a plenty at our last Wildlife Watch session, providing perfect weather for our froggy friends on our Save the Frogs themed morning! After completing our fab frog trails and activities, we were lucky enough to find frogs spawn and emerging tadpoles and not forgetting a duck with her ducklings too! Join us next session on the 9th of May 10am -12pm for our Mini beast morning!
We had a lovely morning in Holywells Park for our last Watch meeting with signs of spring all around us! Join us next month on the 11th of April for our Save the Frogs day to learn all about our froggy friends!
