Join London Wildlife Trust staff for a bat walk at Nunhead Reservoir and Nunhead Cemetery

London Wildlife Trust and Thames Water are working together in order to deliver a programme of guided walks from July 2018 to March 2019.

Join the Trust on Thursday 16 August at Nunhead Reservoir to enjoy the views over London and learn about the Great North Wood and bats. Followed by a walk around Nunhead Cemetery were hopefully there will be the opportunity to detect them.

Bat calls are largely undetectable to the human ear so we will be using bat detectors to listen to the sounds of these wonderful mammals.

Bats use sonar or echolocation to hunt for prey during the night, sending sound out into the world around them to create an aural picture of their surroundings. Each bat has a different call from which they can be identified.

Previous walks at Nunhead Cemetery have provided sightings of bats, but patience is required in the early stages. If there is heavy rain or thunderstorms the walk will be postponed to a later date.

Booking is essential as spaces are limited to 30 people. Please book onto this event here.

This event will be repeated on the 8 September so please check here to see if there are spaces available.
