Down the bank...

Nicola hadn't been down the bank yet so we took her on an adventure. We were looking for fauna (especially insects), flora treasure and anything else...

This is what happened:

Brian (a ranger from the council) came in to talk to us about the fauna in our local area. 

Brian talked to us about pests. He held up a picture of hedgehogs. Hedgehogs look cute, but they eat lots of our native insects. We are holding insect legs in the picture (above). Hedgehogs can eat all of these insects in one night. 

This is poo from different pests. We will investigate what animals the poo has come from. Find out more about pests at:  

Brian showed us a homemade trap. We have been designing our own traps.
