DEVON Wildlife Trust is inviting wildlife enthusiasts to a special open day on Sunday, May 9, at the charity's flagship woodland reserve at Halsdon, Dolton.

The event is open to all and is a good opportunity for local people to find out more about the work of the trust and the sorts of places it protects.

The nature reserve open day will feature guided walks around the site by members of staff and local volunteers.

The event runs from 11am until 3pm and refreshments are available.

David Ireland from Devon Wildlife Trust said: 'Halsdon is one of our best woodland nature reserves and it's getting better with each passing year!

'We have undertaken a series of new woodland management works over the past years thanks to funding from RockETS, so this event will give people a chance to see what has been going on and what's new.

'The bluebells should also be showing in their full glory. They alone make the nature reserve worth a visit.'

Booking is essential.

To book a place on one of the walks, call Devon Wildlife Trust on 01392 279244.
