Join local bat enthusiasts Mary Anne Crafter and Ruth Worsley for an atmospheric bat walk around Hogchester Meadows, in search of the rare Grey Long Eared Bat.

Spying on the secret world of bats, we’ll listen out for these mysterious flying mammals of the night and learn how to use bat detectors to help us identify the night-time bats on the wing.

You can also enjoy a unique opportunity to explore the glorious meadows – part of Hogchester Farms ambitious rewilding project – at night time.

This FREE event has been organised as part of the Grey Long-eared bat project. The species is one of the UK’s rarest bats, with only 8 known roosts confined to the southern coast, including a stronghold here in East Devon and West Dorset. It is also one of East Devon AONB’s ‘Elusive Eight’ threatened species chosen for nature recovery as part of the #SavingSpecialSpecies project.

The Grey Long-eared bat project is funded by the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund.
