The Natural Environmental

 

The Burn footpath passes through a range of habitats: mature woodland with its dim light and moss covered boulders, light hazel woodland with well drained soil, disturbed ground around the old mills and open meadow with long grass and wild flowers. Indigenous animals include, bank vole, rabbit, roe deer, red squirrel, woodmouse, otter, heron, dipper (a bird who walks under water to catch its food) mini-beasts galore and a full chorus of woodland birds.

 

Children can learn about the natural environment as part of their science curriculum, finding out about the plants and animals that use a habitat on a curriculum linked field visit led by an experienced science teacher or experience nature through an Earthwalk -a sensory exploration of the natural world.
