It seems that once the clocks go back we migrate inside each evening until it's light again the next morning. This is certainly true of our family. However, after spending an evening outdoors I've realised we should make an effort to get out more in the dark.
I help run a wildlife group for children, which usually meets on Sunday morning. However our recent event was an early evening session so we could experience nature at night. It was a very popular meet-up with one of our highest ever turn-outs!
We're lucky to have the use of a small enclosed nature reserve. It's on an industrial estate so not exactly a country haven but even on this small patch of green I've seen foxes, woodpeckers, deer and stoats.
