MuseumFromHome: Fenland Animals

The unique landscape of the fens makes it an excellent home to a wide variety of animals! Some fly high in the wide open sky and others live on the waters edge of our marshy landscape.

Join us this week as we have fun making lots of fenland animal themed crafts & learn more about the animals that live here too.

If you want to delve deeper, you can find our previous #MuseumFromHome posts from Ely Museum on The Fens, Eels and Draining the Fens on our blog here
