Going batty for nature

WILDLIFE enthusiasts can learn about the nocturnal habits of bats during a night-time event.

Hartlepool Borough Council’s Wild Green Spaces team is inviting people to Burn Valley Gardens to look for bats and other night-time creatures.

They can also use a bat detector and learn how to identify the fascinating creatures.

Participants are advised to wrap up warm and take a torch.

Booking is essential by calling (01429) 853325.
