Did you know that Train Wood has bats?! It’s not really surprising that this long, narrow natural corridor is a haven for all sorts of wildlife.
Last year we did a bat survey which uncovered some interesting facts. Yet there is still so much to know. Do they navigate using the river? Do they feed on the wing? Do they sleep hanging upside down in the trees? Would they ever really get tangled in your hair?
Now is your chance to find out more. The first of Friends of Train Wood and Marriott’s Way’s upcoming events is a bat walk. Led by Michelle Fielden of Ecology Consultancy on Wednesday 31 August at 7.45pm, meet at the Barn Road entrance to the Marriott’s Way. Suitable for adults, and children aged 9+, who must be accompanied by adults. Cost £2 per adult, children free.
