Take a stroll through marshland and meadow with nets, collection jars and binoculars at the ready. Have a look at an amazing variety of wildlife that usually goes unseen. Dip the ponds to find out what’s lurking under the surface and plodge around in a burn to discover what is living in amongst the rocks and pebbles. Identify the plants we find in the different places and see what bird life is around. Take a stroll through a woodland to uncover the tracks, trails and signs left behind by its secretive wildlife from foxes and squirrels to woodpeckers and ants. Explore the hidden world of woodland minibeasts collecting them and getting a good close look at their often bizarre appearance.
