Smell the evening air; listen to the night sounds; wonder at the stars.
Walking in the dark is the perfect end to a perfect day. Once the sun goes down, our woods become a different world. You’ll hear the ‘night shift’ animals include badgers and foxes, nightjars and owls, as well as bats and moths. The air smells different at night, and this far from a town you’ll see more stars that you ever imagined possible. We often go up to Ramscombe picnic area, and play games, or just sit quietly to watch and listen…. Amazing!
Suitable for all, bring a torch.
