Watching for nocturnal animals

One of the great advantages of Home Educating is that it's not 'School at home' and therefore children can learn at any time of the day or night.
Being part of the Nature Detectives, Woodland Trust for years now it always gives us the opportunity to get out and about even after dark. Tonight, when his siblings were tucked up tight, DS11 decided to look for nocturnal animals in the garden after noticing hedgehogs have been visiting us. He used his nocturnal animal sheet to tick off any animals he spotted and also set up a moth trap by tying up a sheet (can be pegged on a washing line), shining a torch at it and waiting patiently for any moths to be attracted to the light.
