AN Exmouth nature reserve is holding an open day on Tuesday July 28, from 10am until 3pm.

Admission is free.

The Bystock and Exmouth Devon Wildlife Trust group is hosting the event at Bystock Nature Reserve, at the top of Hulham Road.

During the day there will be a host of displays and children's activities.

Cat Loudwill-Jones from Devon Wildlife Trust, who is running the event in conjunction with Exmouth DWT Local Group, said: "Bystock is one of DWT's best heathland nature reserves with good access and an excellent range of habitats including a meadow, ponds and woodland fringe.

"People can expect to see a wide range of typical heathland wildlife including birds, butterflies and many species of dragonfly. "Our members provide a significant proportion of our income each year so it is great to be offering them an opportunity to see what their money helps to support."
