Venture out as darkness falls to discover the creatures of the night!

Meet us in the car park and we’ll head out into the park together with our bat detector to try and spot some of the ten species of bat that can be found here. Previously we’ve seen Daubenton’s bat skim over the lake to catch its prey and pipistrelles roosting in the trees – it’s not all about the bats though. We’ll be listening out for owls, watching out for deer and hares and looking deep into the water to see fish such as pike and minnow. It’s one of our favourite events of the year.

Friday 16th August 2024 8pm – 11pm
Friday 13th September 2024 6:45pm – 9:45pm
