Beetles, butterflies and bugs galore! Join our resident vlogger Emily Hardisty for a trip to our St Erth Pits Nature Reserve – Cornwall’s first geological reserve known for its rich fossil fauna.

Emily’s series of monthly ‘Nature Trail’ videos showcases the very best that our nature reserves have to offer and the extraordinary wildlife you can find there.

Stay tuned for a cannibalistic creature, a mini lesson on butterfly wings and a beautiful flower that was once used to treat snake bites. All of that covered in just 7 minutes!
