Details

Booking essential

Join us on a bat hunt as dusk falls across Fairburn Ings. We’ll learn about their habits and sounds, searching by sight and listening for their clicks with bat detectors.

If we're lucky, we'll see tiny pippestrelles feeding in the air, noctules searching for moths, and Daubenton's darting and gliding over the water.

Bring along a bat detector if you have one (although we can provide some!) warm clothes and a torch are advised.
