Today we have been for a nature walk along Portsbridge Creek and Hilsea Lines with our home schooling group. Hilsea lines are a line of 18th- and 19th-century fortifications built to protect the northern approach to Portsea. The area is now a wildlife reserve and recreational space. You can read more about it here.
The children thought the ramparts were pretty good for climbing on!!
This spider web with the sun shining through it was beautiful!
At the furthest point of the circular walk was a lovely wildflower area buzzing with bees, crickets and dragonfly.
Here are all the children ready to set off again after a picnic lunch!
The weather was lovely for us, and i think everyone had a good time - there were certainly lots of muddy little people heading for home this afternoon - and mud is always a sign of a good time :-)
