Join Chris Spilling in searching through the undergrowth for bugs and critters and whatever else might be lurking thereā€¦

Damp corners and old rotten logs are ideal šŸ™‚

  • Ideal for accompanied childrenā€¦.
  • Chris will identify and explain what you find!
  • Then one of the Sandy Hill Artists will help you make a drawing or painting of it to take home.
  • Last year we found all kinds of intriguing things, as well as a few surprised toads!
  • We have a wealth of wildlife on our small valley site, from deer to lizards to amazing birdsong, but some of the most exciting things are normally hidden.
  • This event is free, but we would like you to register so we can keep an eye on numbers, click here to register.
