Chaffinches visit the Dinnington Community Woodland

What an amazing time we had at the Dinnington Community Woodland! We visited to be able to compare the wildlife in the pond and meadow habitats with the habitats we have been investigating in our school grounds. We were met by two rangers, Paul and Hannah, who took us out into the meadow. We had to sweep the grass carefully with huge nets, fold the net over to capture flying mini-beasts and then put our findings into pots, so that we could observe them more closely.

We then moved off to the pond to see what creatures we could find. We found such a variety.

We were amazed to find two male newts and we were lucky enough to see their orange undersides.

We had a really exciting afternoon.
