During the half term break we ran a stream dipping event which seemed to coincide with the worst week of weather in June. However three families braved the rain and had a whale of a time and met up with lots of creepy crawlies from the creek!
For the bigger kids we put on an Introduction to plants of the sand dunes and coast walk and talk and ran a number of guided walks for all sorts of groups.
We participated in Barrow's Big Clean run by the Evening Mail and Barrow Borough Council which involved a mass litter pick along the beach. It was well attended particularly by the dignitaries from the Council, the police and our usual hardy volunteers.
The dragons came out in force with the emperor dragonfly stealing the show from the four spotted chaser and the common darter.
The fritillary butterflies are coming out and numerous dark green fritillaries have been recorded
