Tuesday 28th July – Bat Walk

Using a bat detector to hear the calls of bats as they flit overhead on a dusk-lit evening is really an experience not to be missed!

You don’t need to book, just come along to the Central SANG (near the SANG hut) anytime between 10am – 12pm and see what you will discover.
