Opportunity to go batty at Fremington nature reserve

Bat in mid-flight

Posted on: 5 July 2018

A free evening for nature lovers returns to Fremington later this month.

The popular bat and moth evening at Fremington’s Local Nature Reserve takes place on Tuesday 24 July from 9pm. As the sun sets and night falls, you can work with local wildlife experts to track down bats using bat detectors and identify the wonderful array of insects captured in the moth traps.

This free event is organised by North Devon Council’s parks team, in partnership with North Devon Biosphere and Fremington Parish Council. Meet at Fremington village green with a torch, wearing clothing appropriate for the weather and sturdy footwear suitable for uneven ground.

Executive Member for Parks, Leisure and Culture, Councillor Dick Jones, says: “This is always a very well attended evening, it’s so nice to explore the nature reserve with a wildlife expert on hand to answer your questions. The reserve is teeming with wildlife and this is a unique opportunity to explore and enjoy the site at night. It’s free and open to all ages, no need to book – just come along on the night!”
