Bats, newts, nightingales

An event that was so popular last year is being repeated again – but with an added extra.

A night time walk around Castor Hanglands last summer was organised to hear the Nightingale sing – with the chance also to spot newts as well using powerful torches.

It proved to be a great night with a number of opportunities to hear the distinctive sound of the birds.

This year the event is being held again – with the chance to also study bats

The Langdyke team are planning to use special equipment to help identify the whereabouts of the bats.

The event is being held on Thursday, May 16, starting at 7.30pm.

Your guides on the walk will be Mike Horne and Richard Astle who will be taking walkers to various spots to hear the fabulous sounds of the nightingales.

If you would like to attend you should meet at the north west entrance to the Hanglands opposite Southey Woods car park on the Langley Bush Road out of Helpston.

It’s a good idea to make sure you are wearing the appropriate clothing for the evening depending on the weather.  You are also advised to bring a torch.
