A special event is taking place at RSPB Frampton Marsh on Sunday with various free activities to celebrate the reserve’s 30th birthday.

Visitors of all ages will be treated to a variety of free activites - from pond-dipping and making birdboxes to learning tips to boost the wildlife in your garden.

The RSPB is celebrating a double anniversary at Frampton Marsh. It has been 30 years since the reserve started and five years since the visitor centre opened.

Chris Andrews, visitor services officer for the reserve, said: “From small beginnings, Frampton Marsh has grown into a great place for both wildlife and people. It is wonderful to celebrate our anniversaries and we hope you will join us for this special day.”

To mark the occasion there will be a special day of free fun activities running, between 11am-4pm.

You can discover what crazy creatures lurk beneath the waters, or be face-to-feeler with a lobster in the sealife tank. Explore seldom-seen parts of the reserve as you go on a saltmarsh safari, or meet mini monsters on a bug hunt.

There will be displays from the Transported Arts project, South Lincs Astronomy Group, Boston beekeepers and the Lincolnshire Bat Group, plus a barbecue should you feel like a bite to eat.

The activities run throughout the day and are free. At 3pm the Mayor of Boston, Coun Alison Austin, will cut the birthday cake.
