Bat Walk in Grantown–on-Spey

 

Join Highland Council’s local Countryside Ranger to discover more about the bats found living in and around Grantown on Spey on Friday 19 September from 8pm - 10pm.

Saranne Bish, Countryside Ranger for Badenoch and Strathspey North said: “Did you know that some species of bat use Anagach 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, why don’t you come along and find out more.

“Anagach Woods and the River Spey provide 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 of a short talk outside at the Forest Road entrance to Anagach Woods and a lovely walk through the woods and down to the River Spey if time allows. Participants should wear warm clothing and be prepared for inclement weather.

Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult on the talk and walk (for which  there is an admission fee). For further information please telephone 01479 873 914.

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