Moth and Bat Night
This event is open to all association members (and their children). There will be a £1 per person participation charge. You can join the association on the night if you are not already members, There is a £2.50 annual membership fee.
First David Baker will set up the Moth Traps before dusk. Then at dusk we will take small groups of people on walks across Scarcroft site with bat detectors (people with children can go on the first session). A commentary will be provided by Joanne Hodgson who will help identify the bats and tell us about their behaviour. The allotment shop will then be open from 9am the next morning. All the moths David has collected overnight will be identified and available to see in containers in the shop. They will later be released safely back onto the allotments. Please let us know if you are going to come so that we can manage the event appropriately.
The promises to be a fascinating event. Places are limited so please book in advance either through our e-mail which is firstname.lastname@example.org or by ringing Sara on 624 906.
