A-Z of Summer: Rummaging for Bugs

In most woods, gardens or country lanes you can rummage for bugs by turning over a stone, flowerpots, pieces of bark or a log. 

In a single expedition you could see centipedes, earwigs, spiders, ants, slugs (some of which are bright orange) millipedes, beetles, worms and woodlice. 

If you see a bug that you don’t know the name of perhaps you could think of your own to call it.

Have a ‘pokey’ stick to hand so if you’re not too fond of creepy crawlies then you can lift things up at a distance, but try and be brave and soon you’ll discover that they’re really not frightening but really fascinating.
