The Beavers where our discovering what goes on in ponds this week on a visit to QE Country Park. Judy, one of the Park Rangers, took all the Beavers over the barrier and down to the waters edge where everyone had a go at fishing out the pond life. In the 45 minutes of fishing we caught neuts, dragon fly larvae, a fish, a leach, some water snails and hundreds of tadpoles.
At the of the evening, Birch invested 2 new Beavers, Isla and Ezri into the colony and we said good-bye to Ben who is going on to Cubs after the half term.
Just before we left for home, the Petersfield District Commissioner arrived and presented Birch with her Wood Badge.
