Creatures of the night
Join us for an after-dark evening of discovery where you will be able to spot and learn the resident owls, bats and moths that call Pensthorpe home.
18th Aug & 15th Sept
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 18th August 8pm – 11pm
Friday 15th September 6:45pm – 9:45pm
- We have limited the number to 16 people for this event to ensure you receive the best possible experience, so please ensure you book early to avoid disappointment.
- Wrap up warm, wear suitable footwear and bring a torch.
