MAGOR MARSH WILDLIFE ADVENTURE

IMG_5651.JPGToday we went on a wildlife adventure at Magor Marsh to blow away some cobwebs, do a bit of bird spotting & make use of the winter wildlife crafts which were on offer. Magor Marsh is run by the Wildlife trust and a great place to visit to explore the marshlands, woodlands & spot lots of wildlife in their natural habitats.
The marsh is free to walk around but has event in which the children are invited to, for a small incredibly reasonable fee, to take part in activities and experience a hands on taste of wildlife.
Today was an open day with a charge of £1.50 per child which included several different craft activities, nature trails, pond dipping, toasting marshmallows around the forest campfire and a meet and greet with a hedgehog!
Here’s how we got on…

IMG_5636.JPGwe had a great afternoon at Magor Marsh and although we visit regularly to explore the outdoors it was the first time we have attended an event…£1.50 was a bargain and we’ll definitely be going again.
