Bovey Tracey Bat Detecting Walk

Date: Thursday 2nd of May 2019
Time: 8.30pm-10pm
Location: Parke (National Trust), near Bovey Tracey, Devon, TQ13 9JQ

Description

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.

Further details

Wear suitable sturdy footwear and waterproof clothing, and bring a torch. No dogs permitted as there may be cattle grazing the parkland. Children are welcomed but must be accompanied by an adult

Parking

Meet at 8.15pm in Parke Estate car park.
