Find fairies, trolls, and maybe even unicorns, who live deep in the hidden corners of the Essex Country Parks. Count up your answers and send them in to enter our prize draw to WIN a goody bag and Explorer Pass (worth £85).

Discover the enchanted fairy doors to cast a magic spell, have fun with the selfie board and see what else you can spy with our Summer Spotters Guide.
