Beautiful butterflies were abundant in our bees and butterflies themed session last month. We had great fun looking for different butterflies and taking part in The Butterfly Conservation's Big Butterfly Count! Afterwards we investigated what other animals shared the park having a go at pond dipping and mini beast hunting too! Join us on the 12th of September at the Stable Block, Holywells Park for our Tree-mendous Trees themed session 10am – 12pm.
Birdlife! We had a brilliant Birdlife session last month seeing lots of different birds that live in Holywells park. We were lucky enough to see and feed lots of birds and their young, from goslings to very fluffy moorhen chicks and ducklings. We then had lots of fun doing a bird themed quiz and going on a scavenger hunt finding lots of natural materials to use when creating our very own bird nests. Unfortunately July’s session is cancelled, apologies for any inconvenience caused. Please do join us however on the 8th of August at the Stable block, Holywells Park for our Bees and Butterflies themed morning, 10am – 12pm.
We found lots of marvellous mini beasts on our mini beast hunt in our last session, from crawling centipedes, busy bees to slimy slugs and wiggly worms! We had lots of fun on our invertebrate themed scavenger hunt and then creating some brilliant natural bug art with our finds! We finished the session by acting out the creatures we had found, then making a home for the park’s resident mini beasts out of elder that we whittled and hollowed out. Join us at 10am – 12pm next month on the 13th of June in Holywells Park at the Stable block entrance for our Birdlife themed morning.
