Join nocturnal nature ramble
6:10pm Friday 19th October 2012 in News
WILDLIFE enthusiasts are being invited spend this Halloween on a nocturnal nature ramble at a Worcestershire nature reserve.
The walk and talk, hosted by Worcestershire Wildlife Trust at the Knapp and Papermill Reserve in Alfrick Pound, near Malvern, will offer a rare chance to experience the area at night and see some of its nocturnal creatures.
The reserve is home to 11 of the UK’s 17 species of bat, and bat detectors will be used to try to spot some of the flying residents.
Visitor officer Ben Christie, pictured with a moth, said. “The group will be searching for signs and tracks of animals such as badgers and otters.
"If the weather prevails and we have a crisp autumn evening, we’ll also set up a moth trap to hopefully catch some amazing night-time flyers.”
The event on Wednesday, October 31, runs from 7pm-9pm and costs £6. Booking is essential on 01905 754919 or by emailing email@example.com
