Youngsters were treated to an encounter with some of Fenland’s finest feathered creatures this week.
Wisbech Museum kicked off its Summer at the Museum holiday programme by introducing dozens of children to the many birds found in the area during the four-hour session on Wednesday (9).
Children then went on to make their own barn owl pencil holders, model swans and duck collages.
Next up at the museum is a visit from experts from the Cambridge Museum of Zoology on Sunday (13).
They will give a talk on the wildlife that can be found in the Fens. Activities, such as arts and crafts, will also be available from 12-4pm. Entry is free.
