On Saturday 4th October the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from the 7th Eastleigh had a group visit to Marwell Zoo.
The day didn’t get off to the greatest of starts as when everyone started too arrive in the car park it started to rain but being scouts we were prepared for anything and we carried on regardless. Luckily by 1pm it brightened up and the sun was shining and we had some very happy scouts.
On the day we were very luck as all of the animals were out and entertaining us.
One of the highlights of the day was being able to invest two of our newest members of our cub pack in to the group by doing there investitures, while being watched by the monkey’s and reptiles in Marwell’s Fur, Feathers and Scales exhibit.
Some of the most favourite animals that the group liked the most were the meerkats, rhino’s, snow leopards, cheetahs, penguins, tigers and not forgetting being able to see a 2 month old Amur leopard cub.
Many thanks to Andrew Dear from the 7th Eastleigh for sending this in.
