Residents joined Friends of Preston Park recently in Preston Park for a bat walk experience. Nick Lane and Ranger Marie Ingledew were on hand to explain the habits of a variety of native and non-native bats whilst we used bat sound detectors to try and identify those living within the park grounds. Unfortunately, the weather was rather damp and many of our bat friends decided to hide away for the evening. That said, we still enjoyed an evening of bat related poetry, funny stories, guessing games, and the flit of a few less rain hating Pipistrelles. Well done, to the younger members who came along to ask some more interesting questions. We hope that the weather will be kinder next year!
Our next mini event will be the opening of our new community book swap on Sunday, 22 October, 12.00 – 14.00, in the Rose Garden. Please come along and see what we have to offer.
Our next main event is Halloween, on Saturday, 28 October, 18.00 – 19.30. Please sign up for this on Eventbrite, via our website.
