Buckfastleigh Bat Walk

A lovely circular walk following the ‘bat trail’ around the town of Buckfastleigh looking at bat habitats and landscapes. As the sun sets we will be using high tech bat detecting equipment to spot bats and listen to them echo-locating. We will see greater horseshoe bats setting off for a night of hunting in the countryside around the town.
