Bat Safari Punting

Bat Safari Punt Tours

Wildlife Trust Bat Safari Punt Tours

Sadly you've missed the boat on the 2014 Bat Safari experiences but bookmark the page for next year's return to the river...

Bat safari trips towards Grantchester Meadows will run throughout 2014 in partnership with the Wildlife Trust. The tours are led by a Wildlife Trust expert and include the use of specialist electronic bat detectors. Your guide will outline the notable characteristics and habitats of bats likely to be encountered on your trip and teach you how to use the detectors.

The hand-held detectors convert the bats' sonar signals into audible frequencies. Different species of bats operate at different frequencies and the ear can be trained to recognise specific calls. With the help of your expert, you will be able identify exactly which species of bat are flying close to your punt.
