For Christmas, I bought each of the children identifier books – a trees one for Boo and a birds one for Little Man. We’re often out and about on various nature hunts, or woodland strolls, and I thought they’d be useful to have as they got older. We also joined the National Trust, which meant that we received a rather lovely free gift, some binoculars. It’d be fair to say that these have been popular with Boo! So, we got our kit together..
We got Little Man dressed appropriately for bird-spotting..
And we set off! On the 5 minute journey to the park, Boo kept talking excitedly about what she might see, and how she’d need to use her book, and I’d have to write down our findings – she had it all sorted! So we wrapped up, took a shot of ourselves…
Found a ‘secret’ passageway..
And enjoyed a few moments peace at a pool, with some duck-spotting, of course!..
Before returning to the car, with all of us happy and ‘nature-spotted’ out for the day!
It was a fun adventure, that we all thoroughly enjoyed. I suspect we’ll be doing it again soon 🙂
