An event held to showcase Norfolk's diverse range of winter wildlife proved a huge hit with families who formed a long queue outside Norwich Castle waiting to get in.
Patricia Day of the Norfolk Museum Services, who was involved in organising the Winter Wildlife Weekend with Dr David Waterhouse, said a queue had started forming outside the Castle soon after doors opened at 10am on Saturday.
'By 2pm we'd had a couple of thousand people through the doors,' she said.
'It was lovely that so many were interested.'
The aim of the event was to showcase what insects and animals can be found in a back garden at this time of year.
Displays included a collection of insects and butterflies, stuffed animals such as otter while a range of activities designed to teach children how important it is to take care of nature were also available.
The event continues on Sunday with doors opening at 1pm until 3.30pm.
