Coot Chicks and more

Visitors sailing on Joseph Wilkes today were in for a special treat. Day old Coot Chicks could be seen on the canal. It's such a privilege to be able to get so close to nature. Joseph Wilkes will be sailing all this week so book your tickets at the museum for your chance to see the chicks for yourself.

Meanwhile at the Museum a number of families enjoyed taking part in the 'Matchbox Challenge'. It's amazing how much you can fit in when you select items carefully. Biggest count today was 30 items! We still have a number of matchboxes left and will be happy to let half term visitors join in with the challenge - just ask at the ticket desk.
