The Stonehaven Wildlife Watch Club held a Wellie Wander and A-Z Scavenge last Sunday.

There were two leaders and three helpers organising the meeting and a number of parents with 12 very hardy children.

A spokesperson said: ‘‘We all braved the extreme cold and had an enjoyable two hours searching for lots of interesting, nature related items. Among the fascinating things found were lots of frog spawn and the most notable find was a lower jaw bone from an unfortunate fox.

‘‘The jaw bone find is credited to Megan who was clearly very excited with her discovery.’’

Stonehaven Wildlife Watch Club (for youngsters between the age of 8 and 14) is holding its next meeting on Thursday, April 11, at Stonehaven South Church hall at 2pm.

This is an illustrated talk given by Andy Turner who is the Grampian Police Wildlife Officer.

Andy will be talking about his work trying to solve and stamp out all sorts of crimes involving wildlife, so there maybe some interesting surprises. There will also be a visit from a Scottish Wildlife Trust representative who will be telling the meeting about Wildlife Watch Clubs.

The local Wildlife Watch leaders are hoping for a really good turn out for this event. Anyone who has not been to a Wildlife Watch Club meeting before, and is interested in going along should contact Alan Belton 01569 767662 for further details.
