A NEW guide detailing the management of five of Suffolk's wildlife reserves is being launched today by bird experts.

Spread Your Wings has been published by the Woodbridge RSPB group and traces the history of reserves at Dingle Marshes, Minsmere, North Warren and Aldringham Walks, Havergate Island and Boyton Marshes.

The 96-page book includes maps and colour photographs and explains how each area is special for wildlife.

It provides useful information on the mammals, inspects and plants discovered at the sites and also includes first-hand recollections of the reserves by people who have explored them over the decades.

The book will cost £5 but 1,000 copies will be given away free at Minsmere during the weekend of June 26 and 27.

Colin Coates, Woodbridge RSPB local group spokesman, said: "We hope that by this action we will spread the word about the unique heritage of the Suffolk coast among visitors and residents alike, in the belief that the more people know about this treasure the more they will want to care for it and protect it."
