We had a first trip of the year to RSPB Old Moor.
We were without a car from September last year until July of this year, so we are enjoying visiting all our old favourite haunts once again.
The playground had been revamped,
so before we could explore the reserve we had a long play in the playground...
We finally set off to explore the reserve,
there were plenty of ripe blackberries to snack on along the way.
The family bird hide has had a make over too.
It feels very welcoming, with nice activities for the children.
As well as bird watching,
there was pond dipping activities and plenty of insects to spot.
The nature trail, has lots of games along the way...
and places to stop for a snuggle,
or for Superman to have a rest!
There's even a place for bugs to rest -The Bug Hotel.
We were really tired after our day exploring the reserve,
but Rosanna really wanted to go into the craft room.
I love it when they get to do big messy craft activities
and I'm not the one tidying up at the end!
