Bat Night September

This event will begin with a short talk in our Visitor Centre giving pointers on what bats we might find in the park and how to identify them. Following the talk, attendees will have the opportunity to go out into the park to search for bats with the parks’ bat detectors. We know from past events that we have found both Pipistrelle Bats (Pipistrellus pipistrellus) and Noctule Bats (Nyctalus noctula) in the park, although there are seventeen different types of bat to be found in the United Kingdom.

 

The event is part of out Spring–Summer 2019 programme of ‘Nature Talks and Walks’.

Who is this event for?

This event is suitable for adults, as well as accompanied children who are looking to learn more about the natural world. No prior knowledge is required.

Do you need a ticket?

You need to book a ticket in order to attend because space is limited in our Visitor Centre, and there is a small charge for tickets that will go to support the park’s charitable aims.

What to bring

No equipment is needed, but please wear suitable clothing , sturdy footwear and bring a torch.

      Apologies for not replying sooner, we were looking to put on some more if the demand was there but unfortunately the revised rules on COVID has meant we had to cancel, Bats start flying again after hibernation in April, May so hopefully we can look to organise some more for next year.
