Какво ще правите

Join me as we explore London's wild spaces after dark to discover the amazing world of bats. As dusk falls, mysterious creatures emerge from under bridges and out of old trees to hunt. Surrounded by myth and misconceptions, bats are a truly unique group of animals, and much misunderstood.

The focus will be on learning all about bats and their unique biology, why they are so important as ecological 'keystone species', how they navigate in the dark and how each species is highly adapted to its way of life. We'll watch them hunting in various habitats, and excitingly we will use handheld electronic bat detectors to listen to their ultrasonic echolocation calls.

You'll learn how to identify various species, from the tiny flitting Pipistrelles that can fit into a matchbox, to the incredible and comical looking Brown Long Eared bat. With luck, we may spot the Daubenton's or water bat skimming the water surface like a tiny hovercraft. Or our largest bat, the Noctule, almost bird-like flying in open skies with it's military 'chip-chop' call.

We frequently encounter other nocturnal wildlife too, like owls, foxes, hedgehogs and badgers. Who knows what the evening will reveal!
Other things to note
For now, please wear masks. Social distancing can be observed, bat detectors wiped down between uses. The walk is very safe as many joggers and walkers use the Heath to cut through, even in late evenings. We'll be sticking to wide open paths for the most part, but need to take care of trip hazards

I'm a lifelong nature lover, who loves to teach people about wildlife, ecology and the amazing natural wonders that are often on our doorstep without us realising! I'm a vet, biologist and conservationist. Whether it hops, flaps, jumps, slithers, flies or crawls, chances are I can tell you an interesting fact about it.
Self confessed wildlife nerd, who believes in the power of nature & outdoor therapy. I'm at the fun, lively end of the biogeek spectrum, not the boring, bookish end. A walk in the wilderness followed by a few beers and great chats afterwards is my ideal day or evening out.

Really fun way to spend an evening. Sean is incredibly knowledgeable! Had no idea how many species of bat live around here. Also enjoyed learning about the tech that enables you to tell them apart. All in all, a very interesting and informative couple of hours.

This was such a phenomenal experience! It was absolutely magical to be able to hear and see the bats, and we learned so much about them from Sean, who is a really lovely person and made the whole thing an experience to always remember! Highly recommend :)

This tour is engaging, informative, interactive and Sean is enthusiastic about bats! I love bats and learned so much about the local bat inhabitants! The park is so enchanting at night, and you’ll likely encounter other interesting creatures of the night! Highly recommend! 🦇

I took my two teenage boys on the nighttime walk. I was expecting lots of eye-rolling and phone-gazing, but they absolutely loved every minute. Sean is hugely knowledgable and a great guy. The timing of the walk was just perfect, with bats just starting to come out to play, then moving onto The Heath with portable handheld bat detecting equipment, listening to the various species of bats chatter and feed. For me the highlight was moving down the ponds where we watched bats skimming the water to feed on insects. Walking back we saw a cute hedgehog wandering about, and then a young fox that was happy to watch us as it went about its business. Fab end to an evening in London. Thanks Sean!

This experience is highly recommended for a date night or a family activity. Sean is very knowledgeable and approachable with a good sense of humour. It was a delightful experience where we got to see 5 different species of bats in one of the best locations in west London. Michael & Belen
