Sharpen all your senses on the hunt for bats – the only true flying mammal – which are fully active and feeding in May, having emerged from hibernation in the preceding months. There are over 1300 species worldwide, and Wandlebury is home to several, including Brown Long-Eared and Barbastelle. Cambridgeshire Bat Group will be leading this guided walk at dusk to look for bats, use a bat detector and learn more about these fascinating creatures.
NB: Free event, donations welcome. Suitable for ages 9+. Bring a torch and remember it gets cooler after dark. Meet at the noticeboard in the car park.
Directions: Wandlebury Country Park is on the A1307, 2.5km south of the Addenbrooke’s roundabout. CB22 3AE. Parking is available on site and costs £3 per vehicle, members free.
