Nightjars over the Heath, 27th May 2016 to 15th August 2016 at Snape, Snape Maltings, Snape, Saxmundham (20.8 miles)
The first time you hear the mysterious churring of a nightjar at dusk on a late spring evening is a moment that stays with you for the rest of your life - and one you will want to repeat.Join our guide for a leisurely, late evening walk to possibly hear this magical bird churring from a song post in spring or maybe see it flitting low over the heath in summer. As night falls we might as well hear the roosting birds on the estuary or a hooting tawny owl in the nearby woodland. We will also look for bats and glow-worms on the warmer summer evenings. These walks are organised by 'Wild Adventures under Suffolk's Skies'. Please find the full details, the latest list of available dates and the online booking form published on www.WASuffolk.co.uk and contact Monika on WASuffolk@gmail.com for more information. Additional dates for groups of 3+ people are possible on demand! This walk is suitable for all levels of knowledge.Please consider that we will walk over very rough and uneven ground in the darkness and bring a small torch. Long-sleeved and dark coloured clothing, insect repellent and sturdy closed footwear are strongly recommended.Unfortunately, because this heathland reserve is a wild location with fence and kissing gates to keep the livestock inside, the path is not fully accessible by wheelchairs or push chairs.We can not accept dogs at this walk, because the nightjar could take them as potential predators and disappear out of our sight.The RSPB and 'Wild Adventures under Suffolk's Skies' are working together to give nature a home. £3 of your fee will go to the RSPB to fund nature conservation on the Suffolk coast.
Please note: this event is not organised by the RSPB
Price: £9; places are limited to 8 participants per walk and booking in advance with Monika is essential.

Bounceability meet at 157 Colchester Road, Colchester Road, West Bergholt, Colchester (7.8 miles)
Bounceability is something we are born with. Think about a child learning to walk. No matter how many times they might stumble and fall, they get right back up again and try again until they get it right. The trouble is that as we grow up our view of the world is shaped and fashioned by our experiences, and sometimes we become fearful of trying again. We get stuck into negative patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking and sometimes just don't know how to change. Have you got stuck or just forgotten how to be happy? Have you given up trying? Maybe you could use some Bounceability.
So whether you feel as if you are in a rut but can't figure out how to get out of it; if you have made bad choices and are struggling with the consequences of your decisions; if you have a bad habit that you want to eliminate; if you want to lose weight or stop smoking; if your nerves are getting the better of you or if something outside your control has had an impact on your life, or whatever is stopping you from living the life of your dreams, you need some Bounceability.
