Water scorpions and stick insects were some of the creatures discovered in a nature reserve by youngsters at the weekend.
About 18 children, accompanied by their parents, joined March Wildlife Group members in the annual pond dipping exercise at Ring’s End on Sunday.
Committee members organise the event to introduce youngsters to the different forms of wildlife in the area.
Chairman Alan Palmer said it was a perfect day and youngsters enjoyed looking at some of the creatures under a microscope.
