Bug hunt

Helen organised for bug expert Alan to come to the farm and lead us all on a hunt for creepy crawlies.

Jack in particular embraced this activity with maximum effort and ran rings around us chasing moths and butterflies. We saw a number of Orange Tip butterflies but failed to capture any however they’re quite distinct so didn’t need close up inspection for identification.

A couple of times we spotted interesting things that disappeared when we tried to investigate, but here are some of the things we found…
