We spent a wonderful , inspiring, and educational day at Oxford Island , Lough Neagh.

 

 

We had an engaging presentation on the history and geography of Lough Neagh. We were also told about the animals, insects , fish and birds that live there.

 

 

We were introduced to habitats and food chains. We were also shown how birds and animals can have visible differences and features depending on their diet , where they live or their gender with the aid of some real life models (preserved by taxidermy).

 

 

We got to go on a bug hunt where we found wood louse , centipedes , baby millipedes and beetle larvae.


We went pond dipping and found water boatmen, blood worms and water snails.


We also went on a guided walk using binoculars to observe swallow nests and various birds and wildlife. 



We thoroughly enjoyed our day! Special thanks to Abbie for organising this and to Pascal and Alan who were fabulous facilitators.
