Council Rangers enter twilight zone

Two evening events have been organised by Highland Council’s Countryside Rangers offering participants the opportunity to explore the local environment after dark.

On Friday 25th August between 8-10pm a Fireflies and Phantoms event will take place at Abriachan. This event looks at the amazing special tricks that animals and plants use to get close to prey as the light fades.
On Saturday 26th Aug 8-10pm, the Inverness Bat walk takes place on Ness Islands. Participants meet for a short talk from the Ranger on bats before heading outside, using bat detectors to spot bats.
Katy Martin Senior Ranger for Inverness and Nairn said: “Both these events are a great opportunity to find out about what wildlife action begins when the sun goes down. Watching bats or spotting other creatures as they start hunting at night is a magical experience.”
Both these ranger events are free and suitable for families.  Bring a torch.  Book a place and find out the meeting point for both on 01463 724312.

These Ranger events are part of a programme organised by the Countryside Rangers in Highland Council’s Planning and Development Service.
The Council’s Rangers are a partnership between The Highland Council and Scottish Natural Heritage with the aim of promoting public enjoyment and appreciation of the countryside and conserving wildlife.
