Bat Walk – Verulamium Park

NOW FULL. Reserve list only. Tuesday 24th August 8pm – c10pm, meet 8.00pm on the bridge near Ye Olde Fighting Cocks.

To book please email josh.kalms@hmwt.org to book your place. 

Join Josh Kalms, an HMWT People and Wildlife Officer and VVS member, on an evening stroll by the Ver in Verulamium Park. The ready supply of hatching insects from the river makes chalk streams a favourite haunt of bats, not to mention the attraction of old bankside trees in the Park as roosting spots.

There will be bat detectors on hand to convert the ultrasound signals to audible frequencies to help with bat identification. On our 2019 bat walk at least five species were seen on the wing.

Members and non-members welcome. There is no charge for the walk – if you are a non-member we only ask that you consider joining the Society, from £7 a year.
