7.30-9pm (Tea/coffee served from 7pm) Devon Bat Survey Research talk at the Tamar Valley Centre about the exciting work Domnhall Finch is undertaking on greater horseshoe bats. Learn more about landscape connectivity and how predictive modelling can be used to look at the potential impacts of barriers and loss of hedges on the movement of bats. This work includes research carried out with volunteers in the Tamar Valley. This will be followed by an update from the Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Project on their work in the Tamar Valley area.
For attendees of both events only, there will be simple soup/bread supper served between 6.30-7pm.
