Make the most of the fine weather and longer days by exploring nocturnal life at the Pinkhill Nature Reserve.

Learn how to identify different bat species using detectors which pick up frequencies specific to individual species.

This is suitable for anyone who would like to learn about bats. It's ideal for families who are interested in bats and would like to explore outside after dark.

Please dress for the weather, it may be quite chilly after dark. Bring a torch and if you have a bat detector do bring it.
