Autumn surveys at the Springfield project

A groups of families carried out the OPAL ‘Bugs Count’ survey at The Springfield Children’s Centre in Birmingham on 24th October 2012. The group walked to a local green space to search for bugs in different habitats. Both parents and children enjoyed looking under logs and stones to see what they could find and then used brushes and trays to get a sample of bugs living in the trees and bushes. This proved a successful activity to carry out in the autumn months in this urban area of Birmingham.
