We're all going on a bat hunt!






                                                         
                                                                      






























Last night we went on a Bat Walk with the Park Ranger from Leeds City Council. We wrapped up for the chillier evening, and packed our torch. We met some lovely people there, quite a few kids and it was a really nice community event. The Park Ranger gave us all a Bat Detector to use, which was a fantastic gadget to pick up the bat calls. We walked quite deep into the woods and as it got darker the bats came out to play! It was mesmerising. You could hear them calling on the Bat Detector before you saw them, so you knew they were coming. I tried to capture them on the camera, but they were too fast. However, i did get one slightly blurry image!


































































We went home when it got too dark, but we had a totally brilliant night.
