A special event for budding ornithologists is returning to the Axe Estuary Wetlands by popular demand.

East Devon District Council’s countryside team has invited back the highly experienced birdwatcher Ian Waite to lead another ‘Birdwatching for Children’ day during February half-term.

It follows a hugely popular similar event last October.

“It’s great to encourage an interest in wildlife in children at an early age,” said Mr Waite. “It can often develop into a lifelong passion and it’s something you can enjoy wherever you go.”

Space is limited, so booking is essential for this event, which will take place at the Tower Hide on Axe Estuary Wetlands, Seaton, on Monday, February 16, between 10am and noon.

This is a free event, but donations are welcome. It will also include a self-led trail created by the education rangers.

To find out more details about this event, people should call 01395 517557 or email countryside@eastdevon.gov.uk

A full list of East Devon District Council’s countryside events is also available for people to view on the authority’s website which is at http://new.eastdevon.gov.uk/countryside/events/
