Crafting Valentine's hearts and taking part in nature walks are just some of the activities on offer at RSPB reserves this half-term.

Titchwell Marsh nature reserve in north Norfolk is hosting guided walks, nature trails and hands-on family activities, including making Valentine's hearts, bird feeders, bug hotels and dream-catchers from natural materials found on the reserve.

Activities will take place from February 13 to 19 from 10am to 2pm and costs £1 per child. At Minsmere nature reserve in Suffolk, visitors will be able to build a nest box to give nature a home in their gardens. Box building will take place from February 13 to 17 and costs £5. Sharon Sanderson, RSPB youth and education manager, said: 'After all the excitement of last month's Big Garden Birdwatch, half-term is the perfect time for families to bring their love of nature from the garden to see what they can find on their local nature reserves.'
