Children try their home-made binoculars while birdwatching with the Making the Most of Moorlands project

The events were run by Making the Most of Moorlands, a Langholm Initiative project. Thanks go to everyone who took part in and supported the programme.

The second week of activities included a bushcraft day, during which the children set up camp, built their own fires and cook their own lunch.

Birds are Brill also featured and included creating bird feeders. The participants made their own binoculars before testing them with a birdwatching session on the moor.

Although the Easter activities have now concluded, there will be more events with Making the most of the Moorlands over the next few weeks.

They start with a family bat walk on Saturday, May 13 at 7.30pm. This is part of the Moorland May Festival which is being held in the town during the whole month.

This is a free event but booking is essential. Contact cathy@langholminitiative.co.uk or ring 013873 80914 to reserve places.
