Children are gearing up for their first half term holiday of the year and there’s plenty going on to entertain.

Take more than just a selfie on a photo trail at the RSPB Ribble Discovery Centre on Fairhaven Lake.

Put those camera phones to good use until February 26 and help to represent the landscapes and wildlife of the Fylde coast in the RSPB’s 2018 Calendar Competition.

Families can complete the Fairhaven Photo Trail by following clues to find ideal spots for photographs.

Images can then be submitted on the RSPB website to be in with a chance of sharing them across the country and winning a pair of binoculars in this national calendar competition.

Claire Critchley, at RSPB Ribble Discovery Centre, said: “We live in a digital age like no other and whilst sometimes this takes away our free time in nature, our photo trail is the perfect opportunity to keep the whole family happy and combine the two.

“The Fylde has some amazing wildlife and stunning landscapes which we want to share with people up and down the country.

“Plus photos are a really great way to get out and see our landscapes differently whether it be experimenting with close ups and colours in nature or by snapping a picture of your favourite secret places.”

Families are also invited to take part in the ‘Minibeast Madness’ weekend on Saturday, February 18 and Sunday, February 19. Drop-in between 10.30am and 2.30pm to hunt for minibeasts and then build a bug home to take away.

Or get your hands dirty at Wild Wednesday mini den and nest building events from 2pm-4pm on February 15 and 22.
