The second adventure of the day was a free a bus trip from Burscough to Mere Sands Wood (stopping at Martin Mere, Windmill Farm and Homestead farm). It was great! All four of us on a lovely, green, old double decker and a smashing welcome when we got to Mere Sands Wood; the Lancashire Wildlife Trust had laid on free pond dipping, which Jacob and Samuel really enjoyed.
