Bat Night

Learning all about the Long Tail Bat that lives here at Pelorus Bridge

Our very lucky kids got to learn all about the local long tail bat that lives right here at Pelorus Bridge. The wonderful Gillian from the Bat Project came to tell the kids all about the bat. She even brought along the net they use to catch the bat so they can track it. After some fun games and a coloring in competition. We headed off to check out weta motels we had made a few months back and have a look in the Weta Tree while we waited for it to get dark. Once it was dark we went out bat spotting with our bat detectors. We found bats!!!! it was amazing to see them flying through the air and hearing them on the detectors. The kids had a blast.
