HUNDREDS of nature lovers descended onto the dunes on Wednesday 10 August, as English Nature held an Open Day at the Ainsdale National Nature Reserve. The aim was to show local people what English Nature does and just what a fantastic area we have for wildlife. The event was hailed a huge success by its organisers, English Nature. At the event, adults and children alike got to see and do all types of things from bug hunts and searching for sand lizards to watching the sheep dogs working on the reserve. It was all fun under the sun and even the local fire engine from Southport came down and was joined by a police quad bike.
"We don't often get the chance to show what we do and what we are protecting to the public. As large parts of this nature reserve are not open to the public, most people do not see what we are doing and do not know why we are doing it. This Open Day was aimed at families with young children, to give the children an entertaining and educational experience, which will help them develop an appreciation of nature and also to show adults just what the nature reserve is all about." An English Nature ranger told us.
