Bats of the North East

Wednesdays at 7pm
Find out about our local bat species; discover where they live and how they hunt at night and get to see some of these amazing mammals in action. On this 3 week course (8 hours of teaching), bat expert Tina Wiffen will teach you about bat ecology, lifestyle and the legislation that protects them and we will discuss current research being undertaken locally into these poorly understood mammals. There will be 2 outdoor sessions watching bats and using a bat detector. The 2nd and 3rd session will not start until 8pm in order for it to be dark enough for the bats to be on the wing.
