We had an excellent turnout at Port Mor today - with around four families containing an awful lot of bug hunters. Happily there were lots of bugs to hunt, including this very friendly snail, which I guess is not really a bug but it came along for the ride anyway.
Fiona gave us a talk on how to be the right colour to be hard to find if you are a bug, and also how to catch bugs using nets and swishing them through the grass. When we caught something we put it into bug boxes which had built-in magnifying glasses so that we could see them better. Then we looked them up in a book to try and identify them. When we had finished with them we let them all go.
Fiona has a website, which is very properly called Green Bug Productions which sells her Wildlife Discovery Packs
