Chestnut Visit to Kingcombe

Chestnut class are really enjoying being out and about at Kingcombe each week this term.  So far we’ve been looking for animal tracks, (plenty of deer prints there!)  Exploring the meadows and learning how to use a compass, We’ve been down to the stream to see how it changes in it’s flow and all the students keep requesting to go back to the bird hide to see what different birds we can identify.  Jenny has downloaded an app so we can listen to the bird calls and learn what birds make which sounds.  This week was especially exciting.  We joined Matt from Kingcombe to go and collect the trail camera that he’d put out about a fortnight ago before going out into the meadows to play directional games.  When we arrived back at the base Matt came out to show us some clips of Deer, Foxes, Jay’s, pheasants and finally an Otter that had been caught on the trail camera!
