It has been so wonderful being back out in reserves with young people this month. After having to postpone a visit to Blow’s Downs with some Dunstable Beavers earlier this year it was great to welcome them back in October. Following current guidelines we met at Blow’s Downs and I gave a little introduction to bats, echolocation and how to use bat detectors. We then went for a short walk to see if we could find some bats. It was very exciting and there were several bats flying along the track looking for tasty treats. We got very excited to hear the detectors change as the bats got closer and it was very funny hearing the little ‘raspberry’ noises when the bats caught their supper!
