... although the dog can't resist 'finding' and tends to give away everyone's hiding places!
We found a path through the trees around the edge of the field, which led to a secret area with a stream and a little waterfall.
We looked up and realised we were right underneath a red kite's nest.
Back in the field there were lots of webs full of nursery web spiderlings. Some of them had the parent spider guarding over them. They're pretty big, impressive spiders.
We had a hunt around for bugs and found plenty of meadow browns that were disturbed as we walked through the grass.

We ended up making crowns out of grass, which the dog ended up wearing!
Then headed back home.
