Children can enjoy some frightfully-good fun at RSPB Frampton Marsh with the site’s half-term holiday Halloween hi-jinks.

Starting today and running every day through the holiday, youngsters can follow a ‘spooktacular’ treasure trail around the reserve and be in with the chance of winning a sweet treat. But watch out for the Shuck – Frampton’s very own haunted hound.

The treasure trail is suitable for those aged five-12 and costs £2. There is more frightfully good fun on Sunday with a ‘Spooky Sunday’ fun day’.

Chris Andrews, visitor services officer for the reserve, said; “The dark nights are drawing in and Halloween is upon us. Come and enjoy the thrills and chills of our spooky half-term events.”

Held in the heated visitor centre, children can build a bat bracelet, make a mask, have their face painted.

The fun day costs £3 per child, with no need to book. Just turn up between 10.30am and 3.30pm.

You can encourage your budding David Attenborough on Wednesday, October 29, with a ‘Birds for Kids’ course. This will teach kids how to tell which bird is which, before putting theory into practice with a walk on the reserve.

There are two sessions, at 10.30am and 1.30pm, costing £3 per child, with advance booking essential.
