Eco Safari Description

Season of the visit: Spring

Castlemorris Wood is a 15-minute walk from our school. The route is a busy road so care is needed when walking.

Castle Morris is such an interesting place. I love the smell of cut trees and flowers and the sound of birds singing.

Points of Interest

Fauna

We saw a badgers sett which for those who don't know is basically a hole that leads into a tunnel. They are nocturnal animals which means they sleep during the day and hunt during the night. You should never mess with a badger because if it bites your leg then it will wait until your leg is broken so only observe from a distance.
