Evening Hampstead Heath Bat Walk

Bat detecting & monitoring in Hampstead Heath
Saturday 12th August | 19:45 – 22:00
Phytology takes a field trip in August and we will be on the lookout for bats in Hampstead Heath. Using bats detectors, we will try to watch and listen to the bats found on the heath. We have a good chance of encountering up to four species including Britain’s biggest bat the noctule.
We will discuss novel techniques for monitoring biodiversity in urban environments and how this can help us to understand, value and protect what is living around us here in London. Meet at Hampstead Heath . Please bring a torch and coat in case of wet weather (We will go ahead in light rain).
