Find out about our local bat species with the Natural History Society of Northumbria; discover where they live and how they hunt at night and get to see some of these amazing mammals in action. Learn about bat ecology, life style and the legislation that protects them and we will discuss current research being undertaken locally into these poorly understood mammals. There will be three indoor sessions on Friday mornings; followed by a Thursday evening in May at Gosforth Park to see bats flying and foraging within the Society’s private reserve, experience a bat catching session and there will be a change to participate in a new project within the reserve. Suitable for beginners.
Fridays, 10.15am, starting 6th May.
