Each month I link up with Jonathan from IN Which I as part of a monthly round up of microadventures.
At the beginning of each month Jonathan tweets me with a theme for the month and being one of those smug outdoors types 😉 I duly nod my head and hook up one of my recent posts in line with the theme.
The theme for September being Sunrise/Sunset.
It tied in nicely with an activity I had planned for the children. Perfect with the nights drawing in. A geocaching, bat hunting adventure with a twist.
Then we got busy, a whirl of brownie camp, evenings out and school. The plan on hold.
Reaching the final day of September Jonathan asks for my link for the month.
Hmm. Big fat fail.
It happens to the best of us at times 😉
Actually it’s a bit pants.
With a few hours left of September maybe I could squeeze in a micro, microadventure (or should that be a nano adventure!)
The sunrise boat had clearly sailed but sunset…yeah! We can do this!
Grabbing the bat detectors (I’m an outdoors, gadget geek…of course we have bat detectors!) we head out for an evening stroll.
Living in a rural area we are lucky enough to have wild space virtually on our doorstep.
With darkness starting to creep in it was time to whip out the bat detectors. Sadly there wasn’t much bat shaped action going on down by the river so we reluctantly head home.
The children not amused.
It’s clearly my fault the bats aren’t about.
At the last moment though the detector suddenly comes to life in the glorious clicks and chirps of echolocation.
A passing Pipistrelle saves the day (and saves me from three grumpy children.).
Come on then October, let’s see what you’ve got.
