Sat 16 Jun RSPB Hay Day


The RSPB’s Coombes Valley nature reserve near Leek is inviting families to join them in a big bug hunt day! Learn how to identify some of the creepy crawlies that live at Coombes Valley.
From sweep netting to pond and stream dipping, there will be plenty of things to see, do and learn! Use a pooter to get a better look at some mini bugs or frolic around a meadow with a sweep net to discover what lurks in amongst the grasses and flowers. Our friendly staff and volunteers will be on hand to help you get to grips with the tricky art of identifying what is found.
