The marsh transforms as summer goes by. In July, we see the eggs in bird nests have hatched and young birds are flying around in the marsh area! Tadpoles have turned into frogs and toads, the water creatures have grown very large now, and we don’t even need magnifying glasses to look at them. Marsh birds such as egrets, herons, swans, osprey and eagles are frequently seen as well as many species of butterflies that are visiting the blooming plants near the water’s edge. Bring your rain boots and long pants. We will use field guides, dip nets, buckets, pans and binoculars to get close to these very special creatures in the marsh. The marsh habitat is filled with new discoveries each day, so come along and find out how special this area of nature can be.
