Budding wildlife explorers of all ages are urged to visit RSPB Leighton Moss and Morecambe Bay nature reserve to uncover a secret underwater world.

A variety of weird and wonderful creatures are waiting to be found in the deep, dark depths of the reserve’s pond and families can do exactly that at a ‘What lives beneath’ pond dipping event on April 9.

Annabel Rushton, Visitor Experience Manager at the Silverdale reserve, said: “From wriggly tadpoles to great diving beetles, there are plenty of creatures which call the pond home and both children and adults alike are amazed at what they find – it’s a great experience for all ages.”

Two pond dipping sessions are on offer at 11am-12.30pm or 1.30pm-3pm.

The cost is £5 per child, Wildlife Explorer members £4.

The activity is recommended for children over the age of five, who must be accompanied by an adult.
