Keep a record of every fantastic wild thing you see, hear and touch this summer with your family and friends and then enter our WildDiary competition.
You'd be amazed what you could find when you become a real nature detective, keeping a record of everything you've discovered.
You can do it in all sorts of places: at home, at your grandparents’, on holiday - anywhere really!
Pick at least 7 different days to write about. Any 7 days will do - they don't have to follow each other, day after day.
Well, you’ll need to write down what you have found. But you can also draw pictures, take photographs and stick things in you find, such as leaves and feathers (but no really smelly things please!).
Don’t worry if you think you can’t draw very well. Diaries are about what you see and feel, not what your drawings look like.
Here are a few things that every entry to your diary should have:
This year there are three categories, family, blog and age 8-18. A winner in each category will receive an awesome Kindle e-reader. 2 runners-up in each category will receive a wild Smiggle a5 lockable diary to write about your wildlife memories in!
You have until Friday 7 October 2016 to email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to:
RSPB Wildlife Explorers
Remember to include your name(s), age and address.
We will tell the winners within 21 days of the closing date. If you would like your entry returned, please send us the correct postage and packaging.
