If you’re a bat fan, or want to see the real thing after watching the latest Batman film, then go to Havannah Nature Reserve, near Newcastle, on Wednesday September 5 to see if the dark knights make an appearance there.

Northumberland Wildlife Trust will host an early evening bat spotting event at the reserve on the outskirts of Newcastle between 7.00pm and 9.00pm.

Over the course of the two hours, participants will have the opportunity to try out a sonic bat detector which will hopefully locate some of the little winged residents as they walk around the reserve.

Naomi Waite Northumberland Wildlife Trust Conservation Officer who is running the event, said: “This event can be enjoyed by people of all ages and is a great opportunity to learn more about these little nocturnal mammals who are at their busiest when we are all asleep.”

She continued: “As protected species, it is really important that as many people as possible know how to help bats safe and secure.”

The event is free but places are limited and do need to be booked so call Laura Lowther at Northumberland Wildlife Trust on: 0191 284 6884 to secure your space. The reserve lies between Hazlerigg village Dinnington Road.
