Ogre poo and other nature walk finds



On Thursday we went looking for spring on a nature walk.







While we were having lunch in the cafe we started a nature walk journal.



As well as starting a journal and taking photographs on our walk, we also filled up the tins and bags in our Nature Study kit with things we found. At home we arranged them in one of a set of storage pages (actually designed for storing mounted slides and transparencies) that I bought from our charity shop last week. We labelled them with the date and place we found them so that as we collect more we can compare our nature finds throughout the year.



Perhaps the best find of the day was "Ogre poo". We didn't bring any home but we did get pictures! Here's some Sunnyboy fished out of the lake with a stick.



Accidental photographs:
I'd taken my new camera with me and accidentally discovered the wide screen setting. I rather like the result.







If you have a post about a nature journal, spring nature walk or any post with a spring theme, we'd love you to link up at our All Year Round Blog Carnival: Spring, which is open for new links until May.
