1. Find the biggest tree in the park or wood
Track down the tallest or the one with the widest spread of branches or perhaps find the tree with the widest trunk. Who will you crown 'King of the Wood'?

Over 500,000 people took part in the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch. Sign up and help by counting Suffolk's birds in your area.
3. Watch a Robin in your garden & dig him up some dinner
Why not dig over some soil and give these friendly birds a tasty treat?
4. Break the ice on a puddle
Get your wellies on and having a cracking good time!
5. Hunt for treasure on the shore
Head for the coast after a big storm and its amazing what you will find washed up on the beach.
6. Take a night time walk
Grab a torch and wrap up warm. The natural world after dark is a fascinating different sort of place!
7. Spot snowdrops in the wood
These tiny flowers are white and wonderful and can be found in small clusters or forming complete carpets. There are lots of lovely places across Suffolk to see these flowers.
8. Build a nest box and put it up in your garden
Construct a new nesting place from off cuts of wood. Give it a good garden location and wait to see who moves in.
