Bats & clean ups

41 people of all ages attended our Bat Walk with Juliette Butler from the Wildlife Trust, on a perfect warm and calm evening. Juliette introduced all the different types of bat we were likely to hear and see and handed out 6 Bat Detectors for us to use. We headed off towards the marsh picking up the sound of an early Pipistrelle and a Noctule bat flying high over the trees. Gradually other bats emerged and we headed back to the pond to watch the Daubentons bats skimming over the water which was bouncing with insects. One of our regulars, who shall be nameless, fell asleep, and didn’t make it to the Bat Walk, but in the middle of the night had a little bat visitor in the bedroom. It seems that bats don’t like to be ignored!

For our next Work Party this Saturday 7th September, 10am-12 Midday, we’ll be working by the pond, having a general tidy up.
