The evening will begin with a very special indoor introduction to some live rescue bats before venturing out into the gardens and woodland on ‘bat patrol’ to learn how to identify the different species we encounter using ultra-sound bat detectors. We will also hunt for the varied and sometimes unusual places these endearing creatures choose for their roost sites.

N.B. Part of this evening will involve a fair amount of walking of a moderately strenuous level which will include some steep inclines. 

Booking: Booking essential as places are limited.
