Evening Bat Walk at Leg o’Mutton

7:00pm, Thursday March 30th, 2023

Leg O Mutton, SW13 9QN

Join Will for a walk around Leg o' Mutton to discover the bats that use the site.

Leg o' Mutton is designated as a Local Nature Reserve where cormorant, heron, tufted duck and even breeding common terns can be seen during daylight hours.

In the evening, the local nocturnal wildlife can be seen and heard in their natural setting.

Join Will Scott-Mends, BCL's Conservation Officer and resident bat expert on a walk around the reservoir. With his expert knowledge and some luck you will hopefully discover bats feeding at dusk and pick up their calls on bat detectors.

We hope for a lovely spring evening, however, weather can be unpredictable, so please dress appropriately and wear sturdy footwear.

This event is subject to cancellation at short notice in case of very wet weather.

Please note, due to the narrow paths at the site, places are limited and booking is essential.

We will meet just inside the large gate at the end of the southern end of the reservoir on the river side (entry from Small Profit Dock Gardens). Use ///jungle.fried.stays for What3Words or this link for Google Maps.
