For those interested in getting close to the wildlife of East Devon, a series of events have been lined up across the area.

Wild East Devon events will be taking place at Seaton Wetlands in January.

On Saturday, January 6, from 11am to 1pm, at the Tower hide, at Seaton Wetlands a What’s that bird? event will be taking place.

Whatever your level of experience you can learn more about the birds found at Seaton Wetlands.

The following weekend, on Sunday, January 14, from 9am, a bird-ringing demonstration will be held at the Discovery Hut, offering a rare chance to see birds up close as they are ringed for monitoring purposes.

And on Thursday, January 18, from 11am to 1pm, a What’s that bird? event has been organised to take place at the Island Hide

All three events are free, with no booking required. Find out more at wildeastdevon.co.uk

For those looking for something slightly different, there will be a wassailing walk on Saturday, January 6, from 10am to 11.30am, at the Younghayes Community Centre, Cranbrook.

This will feature a walk down to the Orchard along Oakbeer Orchard.

Take a noisy instrument with you to help scare away the evil spirits and ensure a good harvest for the following year.
