Visitors to the RSPCA woodland centre at Mallydams were on the trail of beautiful butterflies on Saturday.

The recent warm weather has provided a boost for the butterfly celebration and the Fairlight centre celebrated the fact by holding a Butterfly Trail.

Youngsters were able to learn more about butterflies and caterpillars and view the insects in their natural environment as well as taking part in butterfly related activities.
