Get up close to birds and wildlife this weekend during the Give Nature a Home Festival being held at the RSPB’s Sandy Lodge.

There will be a chance to see ringing demonstrations, meet Ian Harvey, the owl man, and join members of the Beds Natural History Society to discover what small mammals are nearby.

The event on Sunday, March 6, from 11am until 3pm, will also give visitors the chance to make bird cake, badges and have faces painted, with extra charges for some activities.

There will be a binocular and telescope demonstration and hot soup for £2.

Donations for the event are suggested - RSPB members £3, RSPB Wildlife Explorers £2, non-members adults £4, children £3.
