Children searched for insects in Holywells Park during a day of Easter holiday activities.

As well as looking for the creepy crawlies, the children also took part in a family trail in a bid to collect a series of natural objects, and arts and crafts fun.

The event was organised by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust as part of a series of family-fun activities taking place during the school break.

Other events taking place during the holidays include activity days at Lackford Lakes, Knetishall Heath and Redgrave & Lopham Fen.
