It really is amazing what small creatures you can find in the smallest of ponds.

The children identified a rat-tailed maggot, the larvae of some hoverfly.

In the main pond they found palmate newts and smooth newts and learned about different food chains.

Alex made an ingenious grinder from wood.

He used it to crush plantain before applying it to a sting.
