Thought we’d list a few wildlife type events going on over the Easter break,

We are planning to go on  a spring trail at Tyntesfield. They are doing their Easter Egg hunts too.

Mells Daffodil Festival is always worth a visit, on Monday the 5th this year.

Avon Wildlife Trust are doing an egghunt on the 6th at Folly Farm  & 7th at Willsbridge Mill.

There is some freaky nature at the Eden project.

Will add any more as we find them ! If you know of any interesting events please tell us in the comments.

The nature detectives have an online easter pack with lots of fun things to do.

Lacock Abbey bug hunt

Today i visited Laycock Abbey, they had a bug hunting day. We fished in a pond with some little nets. In the water were some snails, tadpoles, waterboatmen and pond skaters. We had a picnic on the bench and spotted butterflies, bees and ladybirds on flowers nearby. I got a bat sticker for my wild child book. It was sunny and cloudy.
