Hunting bugs and pond dipping are planned for youngsters in London’s East End by biodiversity experts later this month.

The East Lake Activity Day is being held at Victoria Park on May 22 to celebrate International Day for Biological Diversity, 11am-3.30pm.

It includes the ‘Great Bug Hunt’ looking for rare and common insect species, pond dipping and angling ‘taster’ sessions at the newly-restored East Lake to get youngsters ‘hooked’ on wildlife activities.
