Bat and Barn Owl Nights - Cancelled

Date: Sat 4 July - Sat 11 July (Saturday only)

This event has been cancelled. In order to keep us all safe, we’ve taken the difficult decision to cancel all our events running before 1st August 2020. Please see our FAQs for more information. The below information is for reference only.


Time: 9pm-11pm

Price: £16 per person. This ticket does not include admission to Martin Mere. This is a separate evening event once the centre has closed.

Join us for a unique chance to visit our reserve with a warden at dusk. First, you'll help the Reserve Warden to set a moth trap, checking it before you leave for the night to see what's been caught.

You'll then walk around some of the reserve, firstly looking for barn owls at dusk before searching for bats when it becomes dark. Our Reserve Warden will talk to you about tracking, recording and identifying bats, and you'll get to use a bat detector to hear the sounds of different bat species.

The event starts at 9pm prompt, with the three mile walk, finishing at approximately 11pm. Please note the event involves walking over rough terrain.
