There is nothing better than a walk in an English bluebell wood in the spring. Today was a perfect bank holiday day, the sun was shining, the birds singing and the children rowdy so we went to our favourite woods to meet friends for a walk and wade in the river.
We discovered loads of wood ant nests amongst the carpets of bluebells and even found a Roman snail! Roman snails are huge and were introduced by the Romans' hence their name (the garden snail was also brought over by the Romans too). They are a threatened species in the UK and are protected by law so you can't kill, sell or even eat one!
We packed a snack of hot chocolate and homemade choc-chip cookies to motivate little legs!
