#50things Friday and Taking the Wild-time Challenge No. 31 - Hunting for Bugs

 A post from Rebecca, our volunteer member blogger, about trying our 50 things Wild-time challenge. She's going writing about our adventures with her family all summer.

It’s #50things Friday!  Each week we’ll be doing a little round up of all the challenges that you have been having a go at and sharing pictures of some of your adventures.  What #50things will you and your family be getting up to this weekend?

BT, LT and I have been out with our magnifying glasses this week - No.31 Hunt for bugs

Armed with a book bought at the fabulous shop at The Vyne, we took to the woods, to see what we could find. 

Take a little look at what we managed to spot: beetles, butterflies and even some wiggly worms underneath a log.  All on just one walk!!!  Amazing how many wee minibeasties you can spot if you are hunting for them!  BT, LT and I had such fun trying to identify them all with our new book.

Now here’s what some of you have been up to already!

@chickensandkids: We had a fabulous adventure last week at another @southeastNT place - #Woolbeding...

@NTIghthamMote: Loving these! New children's lunch boxes at Mote. Sarnies, snacks+ colouring, trails and seeds 2 plant! #50things...

If climbing trees is on your list, then get yourself down to The Vyne this weekend as they are having a Tree Climbing day!  The best way to complete No.1 of #50things and as @talkofthetrees @inhabitthetrees say Climbing trees is one of the most fun things to do IMHO. ;o) #50things #wildtime

Fab weather for a picnic at the moment!  The Surrey Hills have many a perfect picnic spot where you can also complete No.2 Roll down a really big hill – @NicNak569: outstanding beauty in the Surrey Hills and most definitely one of my #specialplaces

Snail race, anyone?  Get yourself down to @MordenHallPkNT All that rain last night has made the snails come out, perfect for setting up a snail race #50things

Don’t forget the NT are running their Wild-time challenge – can you complete 25 out of the #50things over the summer?  We’re having a go…come and join us!  Download your Wild-time pack here and don’t forget to tweet @southeastNT with your #50things pics.
