We spent the morning litter-picking and bird watching. I don’t usually buy plastic toys, but we found these £2 grabbers in
the evil empire of Tesco and thought they would be perfect for the job. Before we set off, we talked about how we could keep ourselves safe and decided that we wouldn’t touch the rubbish with our hands and would wash our hands when we got home.
While we were walking we had an interesting discussion about the reasons why people might drop litter and Aaron came to the conclusion that there aren’t enough bins.
Using the grabber was excellent hand-eye coordination practice for Tabitha!
It was a great feeling to put our bag of collected rubbish in the bin. We’ll have to try and do this more often!
Aaron is getting really good at identifying birds, but unfortunately there weren’t many birds out in the rain. We did watch some cormorants and mallards for a while.
