Children have been exploring nature at Secret World Wildlife Rescue during the Easter break.

The East Huntspill charity put on its Wild Academy holiday club to allow youngsters to learn more about the environment, animals and habitats in fun two-hour sessions.

Staff and volunteers covered various topics including spring babies which gave children the chance to learn how Secret World looks after some of its youngest casualties.

The different ways animals leave behind signs was also investigated through a Nature Detectives session.

Visitors investigated footprints, tracks and droppings.

They also made their own hides to watch wildlife from.

Other subjects covered included rabbits and foxes while children found out about animal eggs.
