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).
