On Wednesday, May 31 and Friday, June 2 you can explore what watery wildlife lurks in the weedy depths of our pond. From ponds snails to newts, there are many fantastic things to discover.

On Tuesday 30 May why not try bug hunting and get your mini monsters meet ours! Led by our intrepid guide you'll discover the miniature world of beetles, bees and bugs galore.

Just in time for Springwatch there is also Birds for Kids on Thursday, June 1. This is a fantastic introduction to bird watching with some easy to understand theory from our guide. You'll then head out on a trip onto the reserve to put those new found skills to the test! This is suitable for ages 8 to 12.

Advance booking is essential for guided events. All three guided activities are £3.50 per child; multiple sessions are available each day.
