When we were visiting family in Norfolk at the weekend, we went to Roydon Common Nature reserve It is the largest surviving open heath in west Norfolk. And, we saw some great wildlife here.
It was a beautiful morning.
The kids (of course with stick in hand) went to explore.
For weeks they have been trying to catch butterflies, moths and other bugs.
Whilst walking through the heath, with every step there were crickets jumping.
So S tried to catch them for ages, he was persistent and got one in the end.
On the walk we saw a lot of butterflies, and way back to the car we saw a lot of Skipper butterflies.
And, C managed to catch one.
We were also getting dive bombed by quite a few dragonflies, managed to capture this one that I think is a Black Darter dragonfly. Amazing!
So, the kids managed to capture the creatures they have been wanting to for weeks.
Another one of the 50 things ticked off the list - Number 30: Hold a scary beast.
