Have a wild night out with the family!

Join us for a unique opportunity to spend a wild night out sleeping under the stars at RSPB Ynys-hir. Start the evening putting up your tents and cooking your supper. Activities include pond dipping, setting up a moth trap and a dusk walk to see and hear nocturnal wildlife before we settle by the campfire to toast marshmallows and enjoy the night time.

After a good night’s sleep under canvas, we can wake up and join our moth enthusiasts to see what has been caught overnight in the moth trap. Then decamp and head home or take a walk explore the rest of this stunning reserve.
