A group of Brownies from Blyth took advantage of the fine summer weather to undertake a nature walk.

The girls from the Newsham group took to a local public footpath to enjoy a spot of wildlife watching.

On the stretch of path leading from Blyth Golf Club, the Brownies, with help from leaders, were able to identify more than 20 different species of flowers including, rosebay, bindweed, toadflax, daisy, buttercup and dandelion.

Fortunately, having taken along pairs of binoculars, the girls were also able to observe a skylark, swallows, a yellowhammer and goldfinch.

One Brownie said: “I’m going to get my dad to bring me along here again. I didn’t know there was so much to see.”

Participating in such activities is just one of the aspects of the Brownie programme made possible by unit leaders.

Girlguiding gives leaders support, specialised training and the opportunity to develop new skills.
