Pond-dipping and Bug Discovery in the Raven Nature Reserve

Join us each any time from 10 to midday on Thursday mornings this Summer to look for land and water bugs and mini beasts in the Raven Nature Reserve.  

Using nets, trays, pooters and jars, we will see what little creatures live in our ponds and fields and see what a jungle it is for smaller animals.  We provide all equipment and identification charts.  

We also look for tracks and signs of red squirrels who live in the Raven woods in their hundreds!  We may even see one, although they are very shy.  

Families with children of all ages welcome.

Park at the Raven Wood car park, Culleton's gap and follow the signs down the lane to the first clearing, stay for as long or as briefly as you like.  

Wellingtons and sunscreen are equally recommended.   

Weather dependant. 

Free!  No booking required.
