Bat Safari Punting

Grab this chance to see our fantastic local bat population as they emerge from hibernation in May and follow their activities until their return to a snug hideout for winter.

  • 12th May 2023 - 23rd September 2023
  • 8:30 pm - 6:45 pm

The tours are led by knowledgeable Wildlife Trust Bat Experts and they’ll make sure you get the most from your experience. The tours are chauffeured and include the use of specialist electronic bat detectors which convert the bats’ sonar signals into audible frequencies.

Your guide will outline the characteristics and habitats of bats likely to be encountered on your trip and teach you how to use the detectors. You’ll identify exactly which species of bat are flying close to your punt and find out about our amazing local species.

Scudamore’s contributes 50% of ticket proceeds to the Wildlife Trust! Since we started running the tours we’ve given more than £60,000.
