Tuesday 13th September – Braunton Bat Walk
7pm, Braunton Countryside Centre, Caen Street Car Park, EX33 1AA
Join the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty volunteers and some high tech bat detectors for a walk around Braunton exploring how bats, in particular the Greater Horseshoe Bat (GHB), navigate around the village.
Braunton Bat Walk will take us along the former railway cycleway which runs adjacent to the River Caen – a vital foraging route for the GHB – and into Braunton Churchyard, and will include a visit to West Hill (Braunton Beacon) woodland where the GHB has been sighted.
Distance: 2.5 km.
Duration: 2 hours.
Gradient: mainly level with two steep slopes.
