Rockpooling season kicks off this afternoon

If you like splashing around in rock pools and would like to know more about the creatures you might encounter, there's a chance today to find out what they are.

The Manx Wildlife Trust is holding the first of its summer rockpooling events this afternoon.

Anyone interested, whether young or old, should meet at Scarlett Visitor Centre at midday, not 2pm as has been advertised in some places.

Those taking part should wear suitable clothing and footwear, and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Nets, trays and charts to help identify marine life found in the pools will be provided.

There is no charge for the event, but donations to the Trust, which is a registered charity, are welcome.
