The Great Outdoors (a nature photography scavenger hunt)

We visited our local Country Park and took our Spring Nature Hunt printable with us to see what late spring nature finds we could photograph.

We found blossom,

a mushroom ,

a bee,

a ladybird,

a swan,

and more blossom.

We had fun exploring the park,

and playing Pooh Sticks.

We had a look at the map of the Country Park to find out more about some of the other wildlife we saw.

We also saw a squirrel that was too quick to photograph, more flowers and insects, and Sunnyboy was able to tick off several more birds in his Bird Spotting book. It was a beautiful sunny day out. Summer is on the way.

This is my entry to the Center Parcs and Tots100 May challenge. If I’m chosen, I would like to visit Elveden Forest. #CPFamilyBreaks
This month the theme for the Center Parcs May Challenge at Tots100 is 'The Great Outdoors'. Center Parcs’ Seasoned Snapper, Rich Heath, has shared a few tips on the Center Parcs blog and our favourite tip was:
