Springtime Safari Orleans House Gardens, Twickenham
Springtime Safari' brings wildlife and people together through environmental education and creative activity to inspire people to get to know the creatures they live around and to protect and support the natural environment. Biggles, the bat puppet, had his usual visit and was fed sock mosquitos by all!
Philip explained the ecology of the different species that are found along the riverside at Twickenham and the children used a bat detector to find a bat (using a simulated call) in a tree. In addition there were hedgehogs, stag beetles and other mini-beasts.
