THREE-year-old Louis Denno is developing a taste for fishing at a young age.

Louis, from Culham near Abingdon, is a regular at Nature Tots, an outdoor education fun day at Sutton Courtenay Environmental Education Centre near Didcot.

Last Wednesday’s session was appropriately themed “getting muddy”. As well as splashing about and fishing for corks, pre-school painters also made mud works of art.

Louis said: “I love painting with mud, and I like Nature Tots because it’s lots of fun.”

The sessions, run by the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust, are free, but parents are asked to make a voluntary contribution of £3 per child.
