Youngsters from Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Ranger groups from Bridlington and surrounding villages enjoyed a day at RSPB Bempton, learning about seabirds and the diverse nature of the cliff-top sanctuary.
Over seventy members of the groups took part along with the club leaders and helpers.
After all the rain the sun shone for the first Wild Guiding event on the reserve and the youngsters were set a variety of tasks that challenged their ingenuity and creativity – from making apple feeders for garden birds to delving into the underwater world of ponds. Other activities included following the Rainbow Trail and having a go at being a wildlife photographer.
“The Wild Guiding day was a real buzz for us”, said RSPB Learning Officer Kerry Fieldhouse. “Everyone got stuck in to discovering the wildlife and helping to give nature a home. Our staff and volunteers haven’t stopped talking about it yet.”
Over 1700 children from schools and youth groups across the country visit RSPB Bempton Cliffs every year to find out more about the half a million seabirds on the cliffs and to explore the habitats on site.
