With all this warm weather we are seeing lots more butterflies and moths at the Reserve. Brimstones, scarlet 5 spot burnet moths, Red Admirals..This Friday we'll be learning about caterpillars and butterflies and thinking about this amazing transformation. We'll be using seeds and sticks from to make caterpillar to take home and then we'll be spotting butterflies in the garden and on the walk through the meadows.
Other nature transformations - our tadpoles are also nearly fully transformed into tiny toadlets. Come and see these perfectly formed but minute toads!
As always at Muddy Boots there's digging, watering and mud painting on offer too. Then we'll have a walk in the woods (distance to suit your child) and head back to the Meadow Basecamp for snacks and drinks, songs, stories or poems.
