Hundreds of species use our wetlands under the cover of darkness and you can meet some of them with us. Barn owls hunt in the vast openness of the Fen landscape, after sunset we will watch for the first individuals coming out to hunt over the wet grasslands. Eight species of bat use our reserve to hunt for their insect prey, we will use bat detectors to listen to their calls and watch as they fly overhead at dusk. We will put out light and scent stations to attract a range of moth species and be able to show you that moths are just as colourful as butterflies - if not more!
