WILD adventures for Mother’s Day were the name of the game for youngsters at Carsington Reservoir this weekend.
Children and families gathered at the Wildlife Discover Room on Sunday for a special Mother’s Day course run by the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.
Youngsters were given the chance to learn about spring flowers and insects as well as butterflies and bees at the event, which included the opportunity to make a wildlife gift for mums.
As well as helping young ones celebrate Mother’s Day, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust are celebrating the arrival of their new conservation manager, Tim Birch.
Mr Birch, who grew up in the Peak District before travelling the world, including Sumatra and the Congo in his work as an environmentalist, said: “I am looking forward to this opportunity to be back living and working in Derbyshire after my work helping to protect the natural world around the planet.
“I am inspired by the vital work that the Trust does to help protect the county’s wonderful plants and animals.
“We will also be working to inspire and enthuse people to look after our wildlife.”
