The brown long eared bats huge ears provide exceptionally sensitive hearing so it can even hear a ladybird walking on a leaf! Cotswold Water Park offers a rich abundance of food and suitable shelter for bats and as a result 14 of the 17 UK species of bats can be round in Cotswold Water Park. During the autumn bats are very active looking for food, finding a mate…or just eating! We love standing on the balcony at Daisy Chain watching bats swooping over the lake.
Cotswold Water Park has organised a bat walk and talk on 17th October at 6pm. This will be led by a bat expert and you will have the chance to check some bat boxes and use bat detectors to see and hear plenty of bats.
