To the Butterfly’s Ball and the Grasshoppers Feast. All are invited, both insect and beast!
Join us for a day of family fun searching for the belles of the Ball. Moth and small mammal trapping, sweep netting, and pond dipping. Whilst we sip hot chocolate, what will the newts be drinking?
Worms will be laid on for frogs and moles, other titbits for beetles and voles! If you don’t fancy that, perhaps a marshmallow toasted on the campfire?
