Beguiling Bats! Our Bat Walk – bat discovery talk and walk event!
16th August 2024, Summerbridge, includes cake!
We are delighted to welcome David Watkins, local bat expert, to host this event at our beautiful Bank Woods, Summerbridge, in Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Beauty.
Firstly, you will learn the basics of bat behaviour, life cycle and identification. In our beautiful barn studio, David will explain some of the distinguishing features and fascinating life cycle of these fascinating mammals.
After David’s talk, we will enjoy hot or cold drinks and cake. You can ask David your burning bat questions.
As dusk sets in, at around 8pm, we will take a short walk down to our ancient woodlands and wildlife pond where David will use his thermal camera and audio equipment to detect and demonstrate the different bats who call Bank Woods their home.
You can read about some of the bats you might see here.
Timings: 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm (approx).
