Weird Wildlife in Heddon’s Mouth Carpark


Hayley and Rachael, National Trust volunteers wearing their weird wildlife masks made at the last Heddon Funday! The sun shone and around 20 children took part in a bug hunt meadow sweep, clay modelling and minibeast games before a quick stream dip and a chance to make a wildlife maks incorporating all the weirdest finds from the day.

A selection of clay bugs made by rangers and children happily drying out in the sun.
