Rodley’s award-winning Nature Reserve is back in business after the completion of the Moss Lane Bridge.

On Saturday, 27 May it held its annual Birdfair and the numerous visitors enjoyed a day of glorious sunshine.

The event featured stalls from the RSPB, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, the British Dragonfly Society, Start Birding, the Spurn Bird Observatory, Leeds University Falcons and many others.

Events throughout the day included Guides in the Hides, dissecting owl pellets, dragonfly identification, pond dipping, butterfly hunting and learning about birdsong. For a small donation you could have a go at rope making.

It was a great day out and if you missed it there’ll be another one next year.
