Animals, birds and reptiles of all shapes and sizes attracted children and families to Cuerden Valley Park for an Animal Magic weekend.

Cuerden Birds of Prey and the North West Reptile Club were on hand to speak to youngsters about the creatures.

Visitors even got hands on with the snakes, lizards and birds.

Llamas, dogs and ferrets were also in and around the orchard, and pond dipping and craft activities were organised to keep the crowds entertained.
