Saturday 7 September, 7.30pm – 9pm
One night of searching for our aerodynamic and magnificent insect-eating bats.
The evening will involve a simple transect walk for 1-1.5hrs using hand-held bat detectors (provided) to hear any bats.
This is a free, family-friendly event.
Please wear sturdy shoes and suitable clothes for the evening weather. Please bring a head torch or small hand held torch as it will dusk / dark. If you have a bat detector do bring it along.
Please note the event will be cancelled if wet or windy.
Racehill orchard is a wild and wonderful place with many wild and wonderful flowers and plants too. There are some that can sting, some can scratch, some even have sap that can burn if it gets on your skin and is exposed to the sun. Therefore long trousers/sleeves highly recommended as are long socks and work boots/footwear with ankle protection. Shredded ankles aren’t fun!
Please note that all children under the age of 18 and people with support needs must be accompanied by a parent/carer who is responsible for their supervision, safety and any medication needed.
This is a free event but donations are very welcome. Please book here:
