Today was our first day back at Nature Discovery after the Christmas break and what a day it was. We visited some of our favourite spots like shady hollow and the Gnuff house. The first job we had to do was check the rain gauge and after all the rain we have had over the holidays Jake discovered it was quite fill. At the Gnuff house there was a nice surprise waiting for us, Kirsty from Busy Bodies was there with her children and her two dogs. We all had a great time catching up and practicing our balancing skills on the tree logs. Next it was off to the lake to see if we could spot the baby ducklings we discovered last year. Two female ducks came to say hello and a wee while later one baby duck came to join the party. The children notice how much he had grown but there were lots of questions about where the other ones were, hopefully next time we go we might spot some more.
