It marked the 20th anniversary of the charity's conservation efforts in the district, where more than 100 people turned out to take part.

Youngsters got a close look at water wildlife, dissected owl pellets and created sculptures from the bones of voles, mice and shrews to take home as a souvenir.

Others made badges from natural materials at the Nature As Your Neighbour gathering on Bank Holiday Monday.

Chariman of YACWAG Tony Moulin said: "It was a brilliant day and we were so pleased to see so many young faces eager to learn about their natural environment.

"This event coincided with the world's leading scientists' report on biodiversity loss.

"Our charity is able to demonstrate small groups can make a difference."
