Spend a starry night in Thorney by joining wildlife experts for a wild camping experience at Park Farm.
The RSPB and Froglife are giving people the chance to experience nature at night by inviting them to set up camp at the farm on Saturday 8.
Park Farm in Thorney is part of the RSPB’s nature friendly zone and a great example of how farming and wildlife can co-exist.
Marsh harriers, barn owls and skylarks are just some of the birds that campers may see from their tranquil site beside a golden field of wheat, surrounded by beautiful Fenland habitat.
RSPB community engagement officer Rebecca Green said: “We can’t wait for this year’s Big Wild Sleep Out and have loads of activities planned such as a wildlife treasure hunt, bat detecting and star gazing. Maybe we’ll catch a glimpse of the Perseid meteor shower.
You may also want to watch:
“Before snuggling into your tent, you can relax with hot chocolate and marshmallows for story telling in the warm glow of our hand-made lanterns. And in the morning after a delicious breakfast we’ll check the moth traps we set up the night before – perhaps we’ll find a huge hawk moth or a tiny, delicate micro moth? It’s going to be great fun, so please join us if you can.”
The vent is at Park Farm, Sandpit Road on Saturday August 8 with a 5pm set up. Event starts at 6pm and ends Sunday 9 at 10am.
