Families explore the wonders of nature in Harleston
Pupils and parents enjoyed a host of environmental activities at a school nature day at the weekend.
The fifth free Family Nature Day at Harleston Primary School on Saturday included birds of prey with the Raptor Trust, willow den building, bug hunting, pond dipping, candle rolling, bird ringing and nature photography.
Youngsters also got the opportunity to make cress heads, bird feeders, animal masks, bug homes and miniature gardens, and explore the wooded area on the school grounds.
Headteacher Roger Walsh said: 'It's been a great day. The weather's not been as good to us as in previous years, but at least the rain's held off, and the children have clearly had a great time.'
Other attractions included Butterfly Conservation, which is conducting a survey across East Anglia and asking people to record which butterflies they see in their gardens, PACT hedgehogs, Norfolk beekeepers, RSPB, the Norfolk Biodiversity Project, composting and organic gardening advice and Harleston Gardening Club,
