Jaqui's Daily Blog

Thursday 26th July

Today we will be taking Katie and Elle back home - but, lucky us, we'll be staying at their house for a few days so we don't need to say "goodbye" just yet. For our last day we decided to turn our (sun-burned) backs on the beach and headed instead for a taste of nature.  Here's Katie:

 

As we had been on the beach three days in a row we decided to do something different for our last day. Nanna took us to Pulborough to the RSPB nature reserve. As it is soooo hot we decided to just take a small walk to a hide where we could look out and see birds and animals. Whilst we were in there Elle spotted a funny looking creature crawling across in front of her. The lady next to her helpfully pointed out that this was a Cinnebar moth caterpillar and that it loved to eat yellow plants. In case you don't know what a Cinnebar caterpillar looks like (just like we didn't!) there is a photo to the left. So now you know what one looks like too!

 

Now it's over to Eleanor: We also saw a daytime moth on the ground by the grass. We were told on our journey that further on ahead there was one there. So we carried on walking and eventually we saw it. It was quite hard to find it though as it was green and on the grass and Nanni thought it looked like a folded bit of tissue paper!

 

And finally: what have been the "best bits" of the last few days:

1. Family Beach Day (Our Number 1 best time)

2. Picnic on Littlehampton Beach

3. Putting at Worthing

4. Hot donuts (says Elle)

5. The Sunshine! (and so say all of us!)
