It started today on Woodbury Common and the events continue all week, helping to raise the profile of nature, habitats and some of the rarer creatures that can be found on heathland in East Devon.

Heathland at Aylesbeare Common is one of few places in the country that the Dartford Warbler can be found.  And children will be encouraged to go out and find the southern damselfly, also relatively rare now.

There are reptile rambles at Sidmouth and Trinity Hill and on Wednesday there is an all-day event for adults and children who want help wildlife, working with the RSPB.

There is basket weaving, mountain biking and pond-dipping, as well as an early start on Friday to try and spot the elusive Dartford Warbler.

A brilliant series of events and really important for allowing children to get closer to nature.

We will be attending several of the events and we are very much looking forward to it!
