|RSPB Big Wild Sleepout|
Although the aim is to raise money for the RASP (a worthy cause) the secondary aspect of the event is the to try and get your children spending a night sleeping outside in nature and seeing what they can see or hear and get involved in nature.
You can sign up on the RSPB website (link is above) for fundraising packs and they have ideas on what you can do at home (maybe a BBQ with a donation on the door?) as well as plenty of events around the country (maybe near you?) that you can attend or get involved in.
You can join in or let people know what you are doing by using the twitter tag #BigWildSleepout
Our plans are to spend the night in the garden seeing what moths we can trap (the light trap may well be out but I'm hoping to try sugaring for the first time), and what other bugs come to the light, trying to spot bats and maybe even a hedgehog or fox (you just never know. The only issue is we will be doing ours early as I am sadly working from the 16th on wards (on nights for most of it), but we will be like pioneers.
Hopefully we'll find lots so look out for a post after the event.
