Good in all weathers...

The Tag Loop Ponds are really proving popular now. On Monday Brighouse Central Scouts Group celebrated the end of term with a visit to the reserve for an evening of activities.  The weather was wonderfully mild and we all had a great evening together. Wild walks, bug hunting, bird watching, and pond dipping were all on the programme, followed by games and hotdogs back at the cabins.

All ready and waiting 

On Wednesday we had a much damper start for visitors from Greetland Primary School, but this didn't stop our enthusiastic pond dippers, who managed an impressive collection of beasts, including an adult common newt. As the day improved we had lots of damselflies and a couple of Common Darters around the pond.

As ever, the willingness of volunteers to turn up and run these events is vital. If you'd like to join our friendly bunch please get in touch via the link on this page. It doesn't matter whether your favourite activity is tea making or spider hunting - we'll find you a job!
