Stunning photos of one of the region's most diverse nature reserves show its inhabitants enjoying the early spring heat wave.
Holme Dunes Nature Reserve, near Holme-next-the-Sea, sits in the north-west corner of the county, making it the perfect spot for migrating birds seeking relief from harsh tropical African summers.
The mudflats, sand dunes, pines and fresh water patches found in the reserve also make it the ideal home for species such as natterjack toads and a range of butterfly and dragonfly species.
To celebrate the arrival of spring, reserve warden Gary Hibberd is to give an illustrated talk about the changing face of the reserve throughout the wildlife year.
The warden will discuss what happens in 12 months on the dunes, and review the ongoing work to improve its vital habitats.
