Bat Walk

Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?  Possibly, or it might be a bat!

Alison Fure has kindly agreed to lead a Bat Walk for the Friends of Cannon Hill Common on

All welcome.

Please meet at 7.45 p.m. on the bridge by the lake on Cannon Hill Lane. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. The walk will last approximately two hours and we suggest you bring a torch with you as it will be dark when the walk finishes.
Insect repellent or some sort of head covering to keep off the midges is also advisable.
