Chasing butterflies at Preston nature reserve
Youngsters got closer to nature at an event in Preston.
Fishwick Local Nature Reserve hosted the bug hunt as a fun activity for children in the school summer holidays.
Park ranger Terry Blackburn was on hand to guide the young explorers through the mini creatures which live in the wild flowers and grasses on the nature reserve.
