Nothing quite matches the atmosphere of a night-time walk, particularly when you are searching for one of the most mysterious and misunderstood animals - bats.
Local bat expert Chris Vine will lead you on dusk walk through Burghley's Parkland in search of bats in their natural habitat. You'll learn all about the different bat species that live in the Parkland, their behaviours, habitat requirements and what Burghley has to offer them. Using electronic detectors, we will listen for their echo-location calls as they whizz around in search of food.
This educational evening offers a rare opportunity to observe and learn about the fascinating world of nature's only true flying mammal.
