This series of wildlife Walks & Talks takes place at the Forestry Commission’s Leigh Woods site. They are suitable for adults or students (and sometimes older children) with a keen interest in the natural world.
Bat Walk and Talk with Jeremy Froidevaux and Angelica Menchaca
Saturday 15th September, 6.45pm – 8.45pm
Come and meet bat experts from Bristol University, Jeremy Froidevaux and Angelica Menchaca, to find out more about the amazing variety of species we have in this part of the UK: how different bat species use woodland habitats for roosting, foraging and commuting, how to study bats and how woodland management influences bat populations.
There are 17 species of bat in Britain – and Leigh Woods is home to 9 of them! During the walk we will watch bats forage, listen to them echo-locate and see which trees make for the best roosts in Leigh Woods – by far the largest block of woodland in the Bristol area, a national nature reserve and part of the Avon Gorge Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Enjoy a hot drink at our Green Wood Barn at the end of the walk!
Please note this event is weather-dependent and for safety reasons we will not be able to continue in very heavy rain or high winds.
