There are going to be half term holiday Halloween hi-jinks at the RSPB’s site at Frampton Marsh.

Starting on Friday and running through every day during next week’s holiday, youngsters will be able to follow a ‘spooktacular’ treasure trail around the reserve.

Staff and volunteers at the centre say pick up an entry sheet – if you dare!

They are available from the visitor centre, where toilets are available before families set off around the surfaced trails.

If children answer questions correctly they win a sweet treat – but watch out for the Shuck, Frampton’s very own haunted hound!

The treasure trail is suitable for children aged five to 12 and costs £2. No pre-booking is required.

For the more serious-minded nature lover, there is also a Birds for Kids course taking place at the reserve on Wednesday (10.30am and 1.30pm).

The child-friendly event will teach youngsters how to tell which bird is which and they will put theory into practice during a walk around the reserve.

Sessions cost £3 per child, with advance booking essential on 01205 724678.

The reserve is a good place to take children to run off some excess energy on over 3km of footpaths and has three hides for spotting birds.

The visitor centre is open from 10am to 4pm daily and the reserve’s footpaths and hides are open at all times.
