The event will begin with a brief talk, and hopefully the chance to get a close-up look at some captive bats. After this there will be a gentle circular walk taking in Exeter Quay, Haven Banks and Trews Weir, where if we’re lucky we may see Daubenton’s Bats feeding over the surface of the water.
Back at the Mill you’ll be able to relax with a well-earned drink from the nearby pub while watching a demonstration of moth-trapping and looking for field signs of the otter who regularly passes through the Mill. For younger members there will also be a colouring competition.
There’s no need to book, just turn up on the night for an 8:15pm start. Cricklepit Mill is located on Commercial Road, Exeter – just off Exeter Quay. There will be some bat detectors available to borrow on the night, but if you have one of your own please bring it along.
