Ever won­dered what re­ally goes bump in the night? Why not spend a night out­side, and dis­cover a se­cret world on your doorstep. What bet­ter way to en­gage with na­ture than to sleep out un­der the stars as part of the RSPB’S Big Wild Sleepout, be­tween 28-30 July? Paul Birm­ing­ham, Big Wild Sleepout or­gan­iser said: “Night time pro­vides an ex­cit­ing wild world to ex­plore. From bats, moths and minibeasts to late night singers and marvel­lous mam­mals. We’re call­ing on fam­i­lies across the UK to go on a noc­tur­nal ad­ven­ture – get to­gether, get wild and dis­cover amaz­ing night life on their own doorstep. “Whether you’re a sea­soned camper, oc­ca­sional glam­per or just fancy an evening ex­plor­ing your wild space, there’s some­thing for ev­ery­one. We’ve got loads of ideas and re­sources to help you cre­ate your very own wild night. And by tak­ing part in the Big Wild Sleepout, you’ll be tak­ing more steps to­wards your Wild Chal­lenge, the RSPB’S free, year-round na­ture ad­ven­ture for fam­i­lies.” The RSPB is also or­gan­is­ing sleepout events across the UK for those who don’t have a gar­den or who want a wilder time in some truly in­spir­ing lo­ca­tions! With spe­cial night time ac­tiv­i­ties from food and sto­ries around the camp fire to a night time stroll, this is the ul­ti­mate sum­mer sleepout. For a full list, plus lots of fun ideas, ac­tiv­i­ties and tips to help you have a wild night out, go to:
