Nairn bat event on Friday

People are invited to take part in an event on Friday run by the local Countryside Ranger, to discover more about the bats found living in Nairn.  

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? 

John Orr, Countryside Ranger for Inverness East and Nairn will be running the evening which takes place from 7pm to 9pm.  He 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 begin with a short talk at Nairn Community Centre followed by a walk around the museum grounds at Viewfield Park.  Anyone coming along should make sure they wear warm clothing and are prepared for inclement weather.  

For further information please telephone 01463 255291. The event costs £4 for adults and £3 for concessions. 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.
