Bat Walk

A dusk-to-dark adventure!

A dusk-to-dark adventure to see these amazing creatures flitting through the shadows.

Join us in the cemetery and embark on a dusk-to-dark adventure in search of these elusive creatures.  Led by a local expert from Avon Bat Group using detection equipment, expertise and a few tricks up their sleeve, you'll visit the best bat-spotting locations in the cemetery as the bats come out to feed at dusk.  Learn about our native bat species, their habitats and how humans can help these unique winged mammals.

Local expert and Bat Guide, Daniel Flew, is a member of Avon Bat Group, a wildlife enthusiast, local Totterdown resident and is also a grave digger for South Gloucestershire council, giving him a unique expertise of Bat hunting in a cemetery.  He says "I have always had a passion for wildlife and spent most of my youth looking under logs and rocks!"
