Walks in The Walks offer a glimpse of the birds and the bats in King’s Lynn
New guided wildlife walks in The Walks in King's Lynn will give people the chance to discover more about some of the creatures that live in the town centre park.
People taking part will learn how to identify birds by their song, and learn more about habitats and nesting requirements.
No equipment is necessary, but walking clothes and a waterproof jacket are advisable.
Dawn Chorus Walks begin at 6am from the Red Mount Chapel. They're being held on Sunday, April 10, 17 and 24, and Sunday, May 1.
Once the daylight chatter and birdsong gives way to the setting sun other winged creatures begin to enjoy the park – bats.
The Red Mount Chapel at the heart of the park has become an hibernacula for pipistrelle bats and natterers and brown long-eared bats have also been spotted.
The leader of the evening bat walks will use specialist detection equipment to locate the bats so that participants can observe the bats' behaviour. There will also be a chance to learn more about the UK's seventeen bat species and their roosting requirements. No equipment required. Walking attire adivised.
