Saturday September 11th – Strumpshaw Fen bat walk, RSPB

Join Norwich Bat Group and RSPB for a fascinating insight into the world of bats. Watch pipistrelle bats leave their roost and then track them on their feeding frenzy around the woodland using specialist bat detectors. Along the way there is the chance of hearing and spotting the many other night-time species that we have on the reserve. Suitable for adults and older children (12 and over). Booking essential by phone (01603 715191). For more details on the walk and the price see https://ww2.rspb.org.uk/reserves-and-events/events-dates-and-inspiration/events/details.aspx?id=tcm:9-486550

Talk on the Bats and Mills in the Broads, by Andrea Kelly, Senior Ecologist at the Broads Authority, Thursday 12th April 2018

Water, Mills and Marshes is the Broads Landscape Partnership Project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project has a big focus on recording and repairing some of the iconic drainage mills on Halvergate marshes, an area which boasts one of the greatest concentration of such mills in Europe. As well as the heritage focus, the enhancement of mills as places for wildlife was explored, with a focus on providing enhancements for bats.
