Ouseburn Bat Safari

Eavesdrop on your nocturnal neighbours

Join us for a fascinating insight into Ouseburn’s nocturnal neighbours!

What noise does a Pipistrelle make when it cathes it’s prey? How does a Daubenton’s use it’s tail as a spoon? 

Join us on a Bat Safari to discover the sights and sound’s of urban Ouseburn’s Chiroptera. Using our expertise as bat surveyors, as well as our endless intrigue for bat ecology, we will introduce you to the diverse and awe-inspiring sounds of different bat species as they go about their nightly routines. 

Our specialist equipment will also bring a new level to eavesdropping on bats… Our Echo Meter Touch 2 PRO, will allow you to be able to hear, but also see the ultrasonic echolocation calls of bats on a colour spectrogram! We will also have heterodyne Magenta 4 detectors to usepefect to scroll through and pinpoint the exact individual contact calls of bats.  

Perhaps we will hear the drip-dropping of large Noctules as they pass through their nightly commute, or even the rapid-fire of Daubentons as they hunt invertebrates over the water.

The Adventure

It's not only bats who emerge with the setting sun. It is very likely that we will have the opportunity to discover other wildlife on this crepuscular safari. We will be sure to bring our binoculars just in case...
