Join Butterfly Conservation and Natural-Ise for an exciting night of otherworldly sounds and nocturnal nature as we head into Fineshade Wood to explore the wonderful world of bats at one of Northamptonshire’s greatest woodlands.

Not only that, but after our walk, we’ll check to see which magnificent moths have stopped by our traps to say hello!

You will be given an all-access pass to Fineshade’s nightlife thanks to handheld bat detectors provided by the Natural-Ise conservation group, which will allow you to hear the stunning range of chirps and squeaks made by these brilliant creatures as they fly overhead.

Please bring a torch and wear suitable outdoor footwear and clothing.

Meet at Top Lodge, Fineshade Wood next to the car park at 9pm. Postcode: NN17 3BB. What3words: Grid reference: SP 97994 98341.
