Qué harás

Wander the city at night and discover the wonder of nocturnal wildlife.

Join me as we explore London's wild spaces after dark to discover the amazing world of bats. As dusk falls, mysterious creatures emerge from under bridges and out of old trees to hunt. Surrounded by myth and misconceptions, bats are a truly unique group of animals, and much misunderstood.

The focus will be on learning all about bats and their unique biology, why they are so important as ecological 'keystone species', how they navigate in the dark and how each species is highly adapted to its way of life. We'll watch them hunting in various habitats, and excitingly we will use handheld electronic bat detectors to listen to their ultrasonic echolocation calls.

You'll learn how to identify various species, from the tiny flitting Pipistrelles that can fit into a matchbox, to the incredible and comical looking Brown Long Eared bat. With luck, we may spot the Daubenton's or water bat skimming the water surface like a tiny hovercraft. Or our largest bat, the Noctule, almost bird-like flying in open skies with it's military 'chip-chop' call.

We frequently encounter other nocturnal wildlife too, like owls, foxes, hedgehogs and badgers. Who knows what the evening will reveal!

I'm a lifelong nature lover, who loves to teach people about wildlife, ecology and the amazing natural wonders that are often on our doorstep without us realising! I'm a vet, biologist and conservationist. Whether it hops, flaps, jumps, slithers, flies or crawls, chances are I can tell you an interesting fact about it.
Self confessed wildlife nerd, who believes in the power of nature & outdoor therapy. I'm at the fun, lively end of the biogeek spectrum, not the boring, bookish end. A walk in the wilderness followed by a few beers and great chats afterwards is my ideal day or evening out.

Right off the bat, Sean was such a welcoming host. He took us under his wing, and gave us some informative leaflets about some of the creatures we would encounter on this adventure. He exhi-bite-d incredible knowledge of native UK bats, and handed out the bat detectors to everybody. We then went to multiple locations in Hampstead Heath, including lakes & open areas (and the stunning view over Primrose hill). We had a dauben-tonne of fun, having detected 7 different bat species, and seeing 5 with our very own eyes and ears. Don’t hang around too long when thinking about booking this adventure! It turned our world upside down, a truly unforgettable experience. Fang you so much Sean.

A really fantastic experience. Sean was fantastic - very knowledgable and engaging. We were delighted to spot the bats and learn so much. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone.

An absolutely fantastic and unique experience. Our host Sean was extremely knowledgeable and friendly with a good sense of humour. His passion for wildlife and animals in general really shines through. It was incredible to see these wonderful creatures flying around Hampstead Heath and to use the bat detecting equipment. Sean explained that the bats were about to go in to hibernation so this was the last bat walk for a while. I highly recommend you book on when they start back up. You won’t regret it!

I had a great time! Sean really knew his stuff and was good at explaining bat behavior and how to find different species. We saw three species, heard at least one more, and got to see a few bats feeding really close to us, even though the weather wasn’t optimal. Definitely recommend.

It was lovely to be able to participate in a night time walk with someone who is so knowledgeable about bat behaviour. Sean’s walk was inclusive friendly and relaxed and we managed to see a variety of bat species in spite of the inclement weather. The hand held equipment for bat detecting provided meant the experience would be suitable for children and adults alike. It’s also nice to understand the way bats link in to to ecology and biodiversity.

It was a wonderful experience, we witnessed one specie of bats hunting over the lake several time, although it was a little bit cold and rainy, still a fantastic and unforgettable night!

Todas las experiencias pueden cancelarse y reembolsarse completamente dentro de las 24 horas posteriores a la compra, o al menos 7 días antes del inicio de la experiencia.

Requisitos para los huéspedes

Pueden asistir 10 personas de 6 años de edad o más.

Más consejos

For now, please wear masks. Social distancing can be observed, bat detectors wiped down between uses. The walk is very safe as many joggers and walkers use the Heath to cut through, even in late evenings. We'll be sticking to wide open paths for the most part, but need to take care of trip hazards
