Mud, fun and games for tots at Wicken Fen

PRE-school tots got covered in mud and paint at Wicken Fen this week, and there wasn’t an angry parent in sight!

As part of the nature reserve’s monthly Mucky Pups days, the youngsters tried their hands at a range of autumn-themed crafts and games, with mud and paint at the heart of their work.

There was also chance for a spot of pond-dipping and some bird watching before the day was done.
