We will paddle from our slipway to a few areas now for a range of bats. As the light fades, watch these amazing creatures glide inches above the waters surface. Listen to them communicate and hunt on our bat detectors while you immerse yourselves in to their world.

As the temperature can dip a few degrees as the sun sets we would suggest a coat and hat to this session.
