Around 30 people gathered at dusk to join the walk led by Leeds City Council Rangers Steve Clavering and Elaine Hill. Elaine and Steve talked about the bats native to the area and provided electronic bat detectors for people to use as the walk proceeded through the woods. They explained how the different bat species could be identified by the frequencies of noise they made, as picked up by the bat detectors. Bats identified during the evening included pipistrelles and daubentons.
