A number of children have taken on the roles of young wardens at a popular nature reserve in Lowestoft.
Carlton Marshes Education Centre, on Burnt Hill Lane, hosted an innovative half-term activity on Wednesday, October 28 where youngsters helped to build a minibeast hotel for an ongoing education meadow.
The Young Wardens programme is aimed at 10 to 15 year olds and takes place over the school holidays.
The structure, made from wood pallets, slabs and a number of other materials, aims to attract a number of minibeasts and provide them with a warm place to reside over the winter months.
Jo Shackleton, education officer, said: 'The children made an excellent start, which we will continue to build on over the next few months with various groups, but there's already a range of different microhabitats for the minibeasts to enjoy.
