Our volunteers enjoyed our last Fun Day so much that they have asked to run another one, which will take place on Sunday 30th September (10am - 4pm).
Entry will be free, although we ask for a donation for a couple of the activites to cover the costs of materials (e.g. badge making).
As before, activities will be aimed at families so that children and adults can participate together. At the moment the activities will include making a dragonfly, face painting, badge making, colouring and art, and pond dipping. We hope to have owl pellet dissection again; I'm just waiting for the experts to respond to my request. There should also be a spotter in Reedbed Hide to help with identification of birds; a moth expert showing the previous night's catch (Sunday morning); and a dragonfly expert by our best pond (Sunday afternoon).
We also hope to have a sales table with a selection of the things people want to buy prior to Christmas. Sorry for mentioning Christmas as early as 1st September, but this may be the only opportunity to buy such things on the reserve this year.
In addition to the organised activities, visitors will be able to walk round the reserve as usual. It is hard to predict what might be seen in the period between summer and winter visitors, but there should be kingfishers here.
