- Evening Bat Walk
Evening Bat Walk
Our popular Evening Bat Walks are a very engaging and interactive way to explore Kingfishers Bridge after dark. Equipped with Bat Detectors and Thermal Imaging Cameras, you will head out along the Woodland Trails. Without the use of a Bat Detector, Bat calls are too high pitched for the human ear. The Bat Detector will enable us to both hear bats and attempt to identify different bat species according to their calls. The Thermal Imaging Cameras will be linked to a tablet and will allow us to see the bats in flight and witness bat behaviours.
Of course an evening walk might also give us the opportunity to spot Voles, Owls and Hedgehogs.
If weather permits, as you finish your tour the Warden will also set up a Moth Lure when you might also be fortunate enough to spot a Reed Leopard Moth - a scarce species that resides predominantly in East Anglia and is resident at Kingfishers Bridge.
A warming hot Drink from the Wren Cafe at the start or end of the tour will be an ideal time to ask any questions about the Reserve and learn more about Bats and why Kingfishers Bridge provides a rich habitat for different Bat species.
