Mini-beast hunt gets under way.

CHILDREN can learn all about creepie-crawlies at an activity day at Draycote Water.

Youngsters can go along to the park to find about about many-legged creatures tomorrow from 2pm.

Severn Trent Water ranger Natalie Needham said: "We have got nets and things so we can shake trees and see what falls in the nets and then find out about the mini-beasts.

"They like it because children like things like that, and they like having a go with the nets and seeing what they can find.

"They are usually excited by all the colourful bugs, but you don't always see them until you look under logs.

"It's fun and learning at the same time."

For details about the event, call 01788 811107.
