BioBlitz Cambridge 2013!

Today, we dodged rain showers and went to Wandlebury for BioBlitz Cambridge 2013!  There were a number of events we signed up for and the idea is that experts and members of the public count as many species of animals and plants as possible in Wandlebury Country Park.

We did a butterfly talk (as it was too cold for butterflies), a slugs and snail hunt and a tree survey!

It was great - I have learnt butterflies have only 4 legs, Ramshorn snails are the only snails whose blood contains hemoglobinunlike other snails' blood which contains hemocyanin and to identify different types of snails.

The girls loved the tree survey!We can't wait for next year!
