Bat Night

August 26 @ 8:00 pm

£7.50 – £12.50

A special late night opening for Bat Night on Friday 26th August at 8pm presenting the opportunity to hear an expert talk before going bat detecting out on the reserve to see the amazing flying mammals and their astonishing aerial acrobatics.

WWT Castle Espie is home to some of the eight species of bats native to Northern Ireland and bat detectors will be supplied to help identify the species that are swooping around and listen to them chattering as they hunt for food. Every night bats consume 3 – 3,500 flying insects and in recent years common and soprano pipistrelles as well as leislers and daubentons have been detected on Bat Night.

Booking is essential for the Bat Night, admission is £12.50 for adults and £7.50 for children. The event lasts approximately one and a half hours with light refreshments provided. Children must be accompanied by an adult and the event is most suitable for age 7+. Bookings can be made by contacting WWT Castle Espie on 028 9187 4146.
