Bat Detectives

Saturday 2nd or Sunday 3rd September 2023


Williams Hall

Stoke St Gregory

Somerset Bat Group

Stoke St Gregory Environment Group

Somerset Wildlife Trust

7.15 - 9.30 pm




This event is weather dependent as it needs to be a dry and not windy early evening, so it will hopefully be on either the Saturday or the Sunday evening. We will be learning how to use a Bat Detector, which attaches to a phone and working in small groups to see how many species and numbers of bats we can identify in the village.  It will be a fun evening and suitable for all ages. Children need to be accompanied by an adult.

This is a FREE event, but PLEASE do BOOK via the SWT Web Site - HERE


Starting out at Stoke-St-Gregory Village Hall you’ll get a short briefing, collect a bat detector and your group will head out to an area within Stoke-St-Gregory parish (including Curload, Woodhill and Meare Green). Please note that you will need to arrange your own transport to get to your survey location. Once you have surveyed your area you will head back to base to return your kit and find out the results.

Please be aware that this is not a guided walk and your team will not be accompanied by a member of staff or volunteer during the survey

This event is part of the Somerset BIG BAT COUNT

It's your chance to get involved in real-time, night-time monitoring of bat species and use the very latest, cutting edge bat detecting technology to collect data. The more data we collect about the county’s bats, the better we can conserve the habitats they call home.
