Nairn Bat Walk

Join Highland Council's local Countryside Ranger to discover more about bats found living in Nairn.

Did you know that some species of bat use the woods as a place to live and find food? Have you ever heard a bat conversation? Do know just how many midges a bat can eat in one night? If the answer is no then, join Ranger, Saranne Bish on Friday 8 September from 8pm - 10pm and find out more.
 
Saranne, Highland Council Countryside Ranger for Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey said: “Nairn, with its river and woodlands provides lots of places for bats to 'hang out' such as old trees, bridges and buildings as well as a good source of night flying insects for them to feed on - so hopefully we should be able to spot a few bats on their nightly rounds."
 
The evening will comprise a short talk at the Jubilee Bridge followed by a walk around the River Nairn to see what can be found. This is a new event for Saranne as she has only recently taken on Nairn as part of her patch, so she's really excited at meeting new people in her new area.

Please wear warm clothing, midge repellent and be prepared for inclement weather. 

No booking required. Meet at the Jubilee Bridge car park NH 886562.

For further information please telephone 07818 588 222  Adults £4.50 Children/concessions £3.50. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The aim of the Highland Council Countryside Rangers is to promote public enjoyment and appreciation of the countryside and to conserve wildlife.
