To start with the group discussed the varied work ofThe RSPB.
Children then matched wild animals and birds to a selection of man-made homes by working out which design features best-suited the lifestyle of the creatures.

All the girls made a bug bungalow, a minibeast habitat for overwintering invertebrates, to take home. We used natural and recycled materials to fill sturdy cardboard tubes with materials that will provide lots of safe havens for tiny creatures. Materials included moss, straw, pine-cones, twigs and even alpaca wool!

To finish the session Brownies played our popular ‘Feather Game’ that demonstrates how dependent wildlife is on the health of different habitats and how human beings often influence that.
