Families learn about conservation at Pensthorpe Natural Park, near Fakenham
Families explored the wonders of conservation as 'Get wild about the Wensum' returned for its tenth year.
The event, at Pensthorpe Natural Park, featured a host of activities focussed on safeguarding the Wensum Valley.
Exhibitors included, Norfolk Badger Protection Group, wildlife sanctuary Wing and a Prayer, Norfolk Young Farmers, Compassion in World Farming and Norfolk Biodiversity Information Service.
The Wensum is joined by the Tud at Hellesdon and continues to Norwich where it joins as a tributary of the River Yare.
The Pensthorpe Conservation Trust works with partner organisations on projects concerning turtle doves, great cranes and corncrakes - a species of bird whose number has increased two or three-fold since conservation management began in 1993.
