Bat and Barn Owl Nights

Join us for a unique chance to visit our reserve with a warden at dusk. First, you'll help the Reserve Warden to set a moth trap, checking it before you leave for the night to see what's been caught.

You'll then walk around some of the reserve, firstly looking for barn owls at dusk before searching for bats when it becomes dark. Our Reserve Warden will talk to you about tracking, recording and identifying bats, and you'll get to use a bat detector to hear the sounds of different bat species.

The event starts at 9pm prompt, with the three mile walk, finishing at approximately 11pm. Please note the event involves walking over rough terrain.
