Friends of Daneshill Lakes

by | 11 September 2019 | Wildlife

The Friends of Daneshill Lakes Local Nature Reserve have organised a Bat Walk on the evening of Friday 13th September, starting at 7.00pm. Daneshill Lakes is known to accommodate at least five bat species. This is a great opportunity to find out more about and meet these secretive, yet very busy creatures of the night, as they hunt for their insect prey. Bat specialist Michael Walker of the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust will be leading the walk. This event is free and no prior booking is required. Bat detectors will be provided to share. The meeting point will be the car park at Daneshill Lakes Local Nature Reserve at 6.45pm and the walk will finish at approximately 9.00pm. It is essential to take torches and advisable to take insect repellant.

Daneshill Lakes Local Nature Reserve is situated on Daneshill Road, Torworth, Retford DN22 8RB. Brown signs on the A638 point the way. Further information is available from Friends’ secretary Lesley Noar at or 01777 818362. You can also visit
