Discover the nocturnal inhabitants of the Bin Forest, including finding out how to use smelly mixtures and bright lights to attract moths plus bat detectors to locate and identify bats. A local astronomer will also be on hand with a telescope to view the wonders of the night sky (or demonstrate what would otherwise be visible if it is cloudy)!
Light refreshments (bat/moth/star - themed of course!) will be provided. Children aged <16 must be accompanied.
Meet at Bin Quarry car park (by former peregrine centre), 4km NW of Huntly on A96.
Free event organised by Forestry Commission Scotland & Aberdeenshire Council Ranger Services as part of the Huntly Hairst.
