Checking in with the Bats!

This photo is of the eager Bat-seekers that came along for our annual Bat Walk 7 September.  Les had more bat facts for us and as usual a pipistrelle buzzed the crowd prompting the walk to start!

We explored the different  environments in the park,  getting our night vision sorted out and enjoying the pleasant weather.  A tawny owl followed our progress for awhile (looking for mates not humans) and bats came out to display their aerobatic skills while gobbling  their evening meal!

Thank you to everyone who managed the pre-booking. Please keep an eye out for another walk in May if you missed this one. And thanks for the donations on the night, these go towards a second bat detector.

If you would like to borrow the FSP detector for a week please follow link  http://fspark.org.uk/…/Terms-and-conditions-for-loan-of-FSP-bat-detector.docx
