Family fun as visitors enjoy nature day

Visitors to Potteric Carr on Sunday were at one with nature.

The nature reserve was open for arts and crafts sessions at the Yorkshire Nature Festival.

Other activities on offer for all the family were pond-dipping and nature spotting.

Famed for its wetland birds, including bitterns, Potteric Carr has a network of paths enabling visitors to explore the mosaic of habitats and enjoy the stunning vistas.

It is an area of low-lying land to the south east of Doncaster which forms the floodplain of the River Torne.
