Beetle mania breaks out at marsh.
Children found out about rainforests, rainbows, hedgehogs and creepy- crawlies during nature study sessions held throughout the half-term holiday
A collection of snakes, worms and other wriggly animals proved particularly fascinating for 25 four- to 11-year-olds.
The nature reserve's education officer, Sarah Oakley, said: "We held activities all week and the children had a great time."
The trust organises children's activities every school holiday as well as during the school term.
