Wildlife Watch - Saturday 25 May.

Time to go pond-dipping!

It's time to have a look in the pond and see what we can see. And we'll be hearing what some of our Kestrel Award participants have been getting up to AND giving a prize to our best-decorated egg! See you at the normal time of 2pm.

Wildlife Watch Group of the Year - exciting news!

Thumbs up for top Wildlife Watch Group!

We had a super time on a bright but blustery day at Testwood Lakes. Firstly we had the amazing news that we came second in the Wildlife Watch Group of the Year competition. With over 300 Wildlife Watch Groups across the country that is a REAL achievement. Well done to all the children, parents and carers that make it such a super group!

In a fun-packed afternoon, we had a game of bird bingo, found out what hard work it is to be a parent bird feeding its young, found some feathers along the way, made some lovely feather crowns, had a look at John's amazing CHALK egg collection (NEVER collect a wild bird's eggs!), had a VIB (very important bird!) visitor and heard all about the work of Solent Bird Aware from Lizzie.

You'll need to lie down after all that, except that your homework is to decorate one of the duck eggs that you took home with you!

We always have a hoot at Testwood Lakes

Boris the Siberian Eagle Owl dropped in to say hello too.

Join is for our next session on Saturday 25 May when we'll be hearing from some of our Kestrel Award participants and discovering what's happening in the pond.

Birdworld - Wildlife Watch, Saturday 27 April.

Join us at Testwood Lakes on Saturday, 27 April from 2-4pm, for another birdy-flavoured session. We'll have a special visitor AND some egg-citing (!) news about our Wildlife Watch group. See you there!

Dawn Chorus

Ocarina Dawn Chorus at Testwood Lakes.

The woods were alive with a strange sound on Saturday. We found some hidden birdies, listened to their calls and then made our own dawn chorus with some ocarinas. And it was so warm and sunny that we had to have an ice-cream too! What a Saturday!
