Ghostly ghouls, witches and pumpkins were out in force at a nature reserve.
Youngsters celebrated All Hallow’s Eve a little early with the RSPB’s Halloween event on Sunday, October 28.
Mark Brandon, visitor and publicity officer at The Lodge reserve in Sandy, where the fun took place, said: “We had an amazingly busy day.”
Staff and volunteers had anticipated that no more than 50 pumpkins would be carved by the visiting children but in the end 110 of the fruits were turned into spooky faces.
Scary face painting was also on offer for the young witches, skeletons and ghosts – and the children complemented their facial decorations by dressing up in great costumes.
And once they were all ready the Wicked Witch of Sandy sent shivers down their spines with a spooky story!
