Bedgebury is lucky enough to have six species of bat that make the Pinetum their home. Armed with bat detectors, join local bat specialists, Simon Ginnaw and Jan Collins, at sunset to see and hear some of the bats that live in the Pinetum and learn more about these mysterious creatures. This is also an opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the Pinetum at night.

"Definitely a 'bucket list’ wildlife item to witness. No need to travel half way across the world, no need to wait until a BBC wildlife film crew arrives to subsequently broadcast it into your living room.” said a BioBlitz recorder in 2016 on witnessing a spectacular bat display at Bedgebury.

The walk will start half an hour before sunset (exact time to be advised closer to the date) and will last about two hours. 

Price: £12 per person.
