Family open day at Tentsmuir

Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve is holding a special family open day next week for local people to have fun and learn more about the reserve.

"Bugs, Birds and Butterflies" is being organised by Scottish Natural Heritage on Thursday, July 17.

Tom Cunningham, SNH's Tentsmuir reserve manager, said: "A visit to Tentsmuir is a chance to find out about the history, flowers, birds and animals here and to have a really good day out."

Activities lined up for the family day include making wildlife creatures, a nature treasure hunt and sketching and painting.

Places must be booked in advance by calling 01382 553704 and leaving a name and telephone number and the number of places to be booked.

Places are only secured if the reserve manager phones callers and confirms the booking.
