A huge “Thank You!” to everyone who came along to our Bat Walk on Monday 12th September. We were delighted so many of you were able to make it and we are already looking at what events we can hold to follow this up with.
To start with, our guides for the evening (David and David!) gave us a crash course in bats, explaining what we were likely to come across and how we could identify them with the radios we were given. But before heading out into the growing dusk, we were introduced to a couple of bats that had been rescued but were unsuitable for releasing back into the wild due to their injuries. For a great photo of one being held by one of our younger guests, check our Facebook page!
Once we were out in the wild, we trekked up the Woodland Walk before starting to find our first bats near the stables. After a tour of the pond, we finished at the entrance where several bats were flying around driving the radios crazy!
