Bat Walks

Discover these wonderful creatures on our Ranger-guided walks. See the bats dart and dive and hear their 'silent' nocturnal calls with special detectors.

  • Booking essential

Spend an evening with the rangers at Polesden Lacey discovering all that is hidden in the dark. The majority of the evening will be spent looking and listening out for bats swooping across the night sky. We also hope to set up a moth 'trap' to enable us to see what sort of soft winged beasties are out in Polesden during the evening. Weather permitting there may be opportunities to do some simple star gazing.
