We had a visit from Heather today. She is an entomologist (look it up 4th class!).
She had lots of old logs covered in moss that were decomposing. We had to search through the wood and compost to find living creatures. We discovered woodlice, worms, beetles, centipedes, larvae, springtails, ants and spiders.
Heather had a digital microscope so we could see the mini-beasts in much closer detail. She had it connected to an i-pad so we were able to take photos as well!
We had great fun!
