There’s nothing like a good bug hunt.

And if you are on a site that promises to throw up some interesting specimens, all the better.

So the Mini Beast Trail at Leighton Moss Nature Reserve should be a winner for curious youngsters keen to learn.

Take them along to the reserve this weekend, any time between 9.30am and 4pm, and they can take part in a self-guided trail around the site.

En route they should discover a series of 12 chalkboards, each with a picture and fact about a particular mini beast, including how to provide them with a home.

All the minibeasts included in the trail can be found at Leighton Moss, so they may even be lucky enough to spot a real live specimen. Normal admission prices apply.
