Fifty Things and Reach Fair

A busy bank holiday weekend, with the launch of the Ultimate list of 50 Things to do Before You are 113/4 on Saturday and Sunday at the fen we had a range of activities going on. Pond Dipping, mini beast hunting, den Building and mud pies. There was a very exciting snail race with a lot of close calls between snails, plus, a new one for me, a Star Gazing evening lead by Cambridge Young Astronomers. It was unfortunately a cloudy night so we didn't see loads, but we learnt a lot and got a very good view of Saturn and its rings. 
Check out the list at www.50things.org.uk.






On Monday we had a stall at Reach Fair, it was a great day for it and I met lots of people to talk to about the fen and the Wicken Vision project, and we made lots of dragonflies and butterflies with the children passing. Look out for our stand at Burwell Carnival, Waterbeach Feat and Wicken Fete later in the year.
