Wolf Viewing & Bat WalkThe Trust has always encouraged our native wildlife and we are home to many bats, many of which live in nesting boxes on trees around the site that were erected to provide additional roosting sites. Since Autumn 2011 the Trust has been working with the Berks & South Bucks Bat Group (BSBBG) to identify what species of bats are using the Trust’s lands.
Brown Long Eared bats and Pipistrelles are the most common species we have and the ones you would be most likely to see on this event. When surveying the nesting boxes we found Brown Long Eared bats using them and while on a walk bat detectors identified the Pipistrelles around the site.
When you come for the event you will have an opportunity to tour the Trust with our experienced handlers and they will introduce you to our 10 wolves and you’ll have a chance to see them up close. There will be photographic opportunities with the wolves and a howling session, allowing you to get that perfect photo to keep as a memento of the night!
Then there will be a presentation by an expert on the life of bats in the UK, where they will talk about the species available locally as well as delve into the work the Trust does with our nesting boxes. Afterwards you will then accompany the experts and handlers on a walk around the Trust at dusk to see the long-eared bats flying above you for a truly magnificent evening! £15 per person.
