Monthly wildlife monitoring events in Walpole Park take place most Friday evenings and Saturday mornings. People of all ages and abilities are invited to take part. During the sessions you could track bats, moths and birds, contributing to wider monitoring and conservation schemes.

"During the evening sessions, groups will monitor bats by using specialist hand-held devices to tune into frequencies that pick up their calling noises. A local expert will be on hand to answer questions and offer information about the species found. Participants will also work with a moth expert to set-up light boxes to attract moths overnight, as well as learn fun facts about the little creatures.
The following morning, groups will count and categorise the moths held in the light box before embarking on a guided bird walk. Led by an ornithologist, the walk will give amateur bird watchers and nature-lovers the opportunity to get up-close to local species and learn more about birds."
Bookings are essential. Please email Emma Allen on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to book your place.
