Wildlife broadcaster and photographer Chris Sperring will continue his work in Worle this month, with a walk and birdbox-making session.

Big Worle has been running the Worle Wildlife Project to help people interact with nature and take part in various activities.

It has involved primary school children creating a nature trail, making bat boxes and planting wildflowers.

The first wildlife walk of 2018 will take place on January 19, and Chris will show how people can help with conservation on their doorsteps.

The walk will start at 1pm, and people should meet at the Big Worle Hub in Clovelly Road.

The next day, people will be able to make birdboxes.

In the first part of the session, starting in the Big Worle Hub at 11am, people will make the boxes.

There will then be a walk around Worle, where their creations will be installed.
