6.30pm to 10pm Wednesday 11 September 2019
Forget the old wives tales about bats and come out to see and hear them yourself. Yes, hear them!
Using hand-held devices that detect the bat's signals and lower their frequencies so that we can hear them, Kevin will lead us around the grounds of Haughton Hall. As the light fades the bats come out to hunt for insects and will be visible against the sky.
Kevin has 'boundless' knowledge about bats and can answer your questions as we walk around. The different species of bats emit calls at different frequencies so it should be possible to find several species of these tiny creatures.
Meet in the Brook Suite from 6.30pm. Kevin will set the scene from 7pm, and then we'll be outside. The walk will conclude with tea/coffee and biscuits in the Brook Suite.Please wear stout boots/walking shoes as the terrain may be muddy, and make sure you bring a bring a torch!
In the event of bad weather, Kevin will give us his talk entitled 'Love and War'. This is about how our so familiar garden birds became 'garden birds'.The talk will start at 7pm followed by refreshments.
