Families met a variety of creatures during an open day at a Nailsea nature reserve on Saturday afternoon.
Volunteers from Nailsea Environment and Wildlife Trust (NEWT) put on a host of activities to introduce visitors to the wildlife at Moorend Spout Nature Reserve, off Pound Lane.
It was the second open day run by NEWT and activities including walks and talks on birds, butterflies and plants which can be found at the reserve.
Children took nets and buckets along to enjoy pond-dipping while younger visitors took part in a pooh stick competition from Land Yeo bridge, a treasure trail and tree quiz around the nature reserve.
The six-acre beauty spot is home to a variety of flora and fauna and features two ponds.
Volunteers also ran one of their monthly working party sessions to give people the chance to join in.
Work days are held on the first Saturday of each month from 10am to noon.
