A YOUNG wildlife enthusiast from Cross has been given a top award for his work as a member of the Somerset Wildlife Trust's Mendip Hills watch group.

Robert Hall, aged 12, received the Doug Woods award, which was set up in memory of the leading local naturalist and is given annually to encourage and reward the efforts of promising young members.

The Hugh Sexey Middle School pupil has helped with owl and bat surveys, made bat boxes and carried out conservation work at Cheddar’s Black Rock reserve and the Springfield site.

Robert was given the award during a day of events at the Mark home of Ann and Norman Lees which raised more than £3,000 for the wildlife trust.
