Bovey Tracey Evening Bat Safari – various dates
Location: Parke (National Trust), near Bovey Tracey, Devon, TQ13 9JQ
Join Bovey Bat Group for an evening bat detecting walk in the grounds of Parke Estate, Bovey Tracey. On this walk we hope to glimpse some stunning aerial displays – we will be using bat detectors to listen to and to identify the bats around us. Some bats come out at dusk, such as pipistrelles and noctules whilst others, including the greater horseshoe, wait until dark. The bat detecting walk will take you through some great ‘batty’ places and you will learn more about what our local bats need to survive.
This is a series of Thursday evening walks on the following dates in 2020;
7th May, 4th June, 2nd July, 6th August, 3rd September
