Bats, Bats & More Bats ... What a Night!


112 people fronted up to our 'Bat Night' led by Lindy Lumsden and Paul Gray.

Harp trap is placed in a 'flight path' opposite the Riddells Creek Winery.


A walk in the bush led us to the first catch - a beautiful and tiny Forest Bat (4g - the weight of a 20c piece).


For those who managed to stay for the final trip out (about 11pm), the reward was a Lesser Long-eared Bat.

Thanks to all who turned up to what was a memorable, informative and fun evening.
