Join Dave Edgcombe and some high tech bat detectors for a walk around Braunton exploring how bats, in particular the Greater Horseshoe Bat (GHB), navigate around the village.

Braunton Bat Walk will take us along the former railway cycleway which runs adjacent to the River Caen – a vital foraging route for the GHB – and into Braunton Churchyard.  It will include a visit to West Hill (Braunton Beacon) woodland where the GHB has been sighted.

Duration: 2 hours.
