So sadly this Tuesday (12/07) was our last Bog Blog session. The aim of this session was to head out to the bird hide and use our binoculars to record what birds we could see on the marsh.

Some of the children wrote in their nature diaries about what they saw and how they felt. And we finally after a brief shower, which we sat out in whilst in the bird hide, made our final journey back to school.
I would like to say a huge thank you to the school for their support, the children for their enthusiasm, the parents who helped with lifts to the marsh and of course the Aune Conservation Association for giving the children of Aveton Gifford the chance to get to know their local wild spaces. I personally feel that engaging children with their natural environment in this fast-moving and technology orientated society is an incredibly valuable opportunity that we really must share with our children.
