We held our very popular Bat Watch one Friday evening in early October. What a fantastic evening we had! Using the equipment supplied by our Bat Expert, Russell Hedley, we heard and then saw lots of bats, throughout the whole walk! We learnt lots about bats, their habits and what they eat. We even heard some owls too!
