WEE COUNTY residents are being reminded that the RSPB are hosting the first of many events this weekend.

The activities, all of which take place at Black Devon Wetlands, Alloa, begin on Saturday and run through to November.

The first event is Hug-a-Bug where locals can join RSPB staff on a fun filled day looking for bugs and butterflies that call the reserve their home.

Try some sweep netting, pond dipping and make a bug hotel for all the bugs and beasties in your own garden. 

This is a drop in event which will take place on April 7 between 10am and 3pm.

There will also be a dawn chorus on May 5 at 5.30am for early risers.

May is the best time of year to hear the first bird songs of the day in its full glory.

It’s an early start but attendees will be rewarded by a symphony and some helpful guidance from RSPB staff. Then, enjoy a croissant and cup of tea to start the day.

Later in the year there will be a family fun day in July followed by an after-dark event in November.
