Nature Spotting


PARTICIPATE!
We are surrounded by wildlife! We live together with many species of living things in our houses, in our gardens, in our local park or at school. We often don't notice the variety of species that inhabit our very near surroundings. In this section, I encourage you to look out for them. Carry a small camera with you and do some nature spotting! Take pictures and identify as many living things as you can. You can publish your photos in this section.Once you get started you'll be surprised to find the biodiversity around you!

You can send your nature spotting photographs to sciencemagazinesheilabastian@gmail.com

Any moment is good for nature spotting! Some of our students spotted this fungi growing in the "prehistoric"girls toilets on our history trip to Valencina, Seville.
After a little research I'm inclined to believe this is the Pleurotus pulmonaris - Lung oyster mushroom -  Pleuroto de verano
