Habitat Surveys

Bring out the inner nature detective to find out what’s really out there!

Pupils will get stuck into this activity by exploring pond and meadow habitats at the Trust and get up close with magnifying glasses to develop their investigative skills. They’ll then record their findings by using species ID and recording sheets.

These sessions can be split into three different sessions and, for larger groups, we can organise pond and meadow sessions to run simultaneously.

    Owls can catch their prey in complete darkness. This is because their ears are positioned asymmetrically which allows them to pinpoint the location of prey movements.
