Visiting a butterfly house; our local zoo has a brilliant butterfly house where you can see lots of different chrysalides and walk among the butterflies.

And when we had found all there was to be found we made some new species of butterfly with card, double-sided tape and tiny pieces of colour found at our local nature reserve.

I hope you have enjoyed reading about our summer of butterfly fun.  Sitting inside, listening to the wind and the rain, it seems those days are behind us, it is now time for layering up, swapping the sandals for wellies and heading out for some autumnal adventures, bring it on!
