Bats up close

On Friday 17 August, 25 people attended a bat encounter event at the Nature Centre classroom run in association with Sussex Wildlife Trust. Jenny Clark from the Sussex Bat Hospital gave an interesting talk and brought along some of her patients including pipestrelle, noctule and long eared bats, giving the rare chance of seeing these creatures up close.

The talk was followed by a walk around Tilgate Lake with bat detectors to locate and identify bats in their natural habitat. Pipestrelle, noctule and Daubentons’ bats were all recorded.
