As part of a series of summer events, 11 youngsters and their parents took part in the Bugs, Beasties, Feathers and Flowers workshop.

A spokesman from Wyre Council said: “It was a good activity, the children enjoyed finding frogspawn, several types of spiders, beetle lavae and other bugs and creepy crawlies.”
