Bats and Orchards: A Twilight Expedition

Herefordshire Wildlife Trust invites you to join them for a twilight bat-watching expedition through orchards, lakeside paths, and tranquil village lanes, offering a captivating experience.

oin Herefordshire Wildlife Trust for an enchanting evening of bat spotting and orchard exploration! This event is perfect for nature enthusiasts of all ages, but we recommend it for individuals aged 12 and above due to the focus on listening to bat calls, which can be challenging for younger children.

The adventure begins approximately 45 minutes before sunset with an introductory talk and the chance to hear some fascinating bat sounds. We’ll then meander through the orchard, where you might catch glimpses of Noctule and Pipistrelle bats while learning about the history and importance of these traditional habitats. As dusk settles, we’ll continue our journey towards the picturesque bridge over the Lugg at Bodenhamchurch, where you can expect to encounter more species such as, Daubentons, with luck, Serotine and possibly a Lesser Horseshoe or two..
