Night Safari

Join us for this night-time expedition to discover Thrupp Lake’s wildlife, who knows what you might find?

We’ll be going on a guided walk of the nature reserve and using a variety of techniques to see, hear and trap the local wildlife. We will check the small mammal traps (non lethal and totally humane – it captures them in a box with plenty of food and hay to keep them cosy) – in the past we have caught wood mice, bank voles and a shrew. We’ll then get out the bat detectors and go on a walk around listening out for them, and looking for them with high power torches. Finally, once it’s dark, we’ll go to the moth trap to see what’s coming to the light – moths come in every shape, size and colour!

Due to the timing this may not be suitable for very young children.
