A big thanks to everyone who came to Discovery Day. We were comfortably busy with over 500 people attending. The weather did not too promising but by the end we were taking down the tents in the bright sunshine. There was plenty to do with all the family!
The site looked great
Lots going on in the Marquee
CEH had microscopes looking at underwater minibeasts
Danielle from the British Dragonfly Society had games planned for the kids
SANA were busy with their flycasting demos
The willow weaving tent proved popular. Points for spotting volunteer Dave!
The Forth Fisheries Trust were on hand to explain their work
There was a chance to see Palmate Newts up close on the Fife Amphibian table
The Tay Ringing Group tent was always mobbed when they’d trapped a bird
They ended the day trapping a Swallow
We will hopefully be doing Discovery Day again next year. Details of the organisations who attended are listed below.
