Nature lovers will have the chance to find out about wildlife and rare breed livestock at a new wetland centre.

The Earsham Wetland Centre will be opened on Friday, June 23 in the old River Waveney Study Centre building, on the site of the former Otter Trust.

To mark the opening, Shorelands-based plant and animal expert Ben Potterton will lead a walk along the River Waveney before returning to the centre for a talk about its development.

Mr Potterton manages conservation projects across the region, and, as an Otter Trust trustee has re-developed the Earsham site, purchased Dickleburgh Moor to create a new nature reserve and established new conservation initiatives overseas.

The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £10, available from Bungay Library on 01986 892748 or 01986 894653. Profits from the evening will go support the Bungay Community Centre.
