Flying minibeast hunt

Use this spotter sheet to help you identify flying insects.

Look to the skies and see how many of these winged minibeasts you can see.

  • Some insects buzz, some flutter and some hover – how many of each can you find?
  • Look in different habitats like woods, meadows and by rivers and ponds
  • Can you spot any insects resting on leaves in the sunshine?

Be careful when hunting minibeasts – they can be delicate, so if you pick one up to get a closer look, be gentle.
