Join An Taisce and bat ecologist Kate Mc Aney of the Vincent Wildlife Trust for a night touring the bat haunts of Galway City. If there is suitable roosting habitat, bats can be found in surprising places, and Kate will be talking about how these nocturnal mammals find the suitable habitat and food required to survive in one of Ireland's busiest cities. Species that we hope to hear (and perhaps see!) include the Soprano Pipistrelle, the Common Pipistrelle, Leister’s bat and possibly Daubenton’s bat.

Time: 10pm-12 midnight (at the latest).

Meeting place: Galway Cathedral car park.

All ages welcome, children must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear warm clothing and bring a torch if you have one!

No dogs allowed.
