(Cancelled*) Dusk Bat Survey at Haydons Pond, Earnley

October 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm

*Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled due to predicted poor weather conditions.

The Project

FLOW (Fixing and Linking Our Wetlands) is a Heritage Lottery Funded Project to survey and improve the ditch network of the Manhood Peninsula, to prevent flooding and increase vital habitat for wildlife. FLOW works in the following parishes: Apuldram, Donnington, Earnley, East Wittering, Bracklesham, Hunston, North Mundham, Selsey, Sidlesham, West Wittering, West Itchenor and Birdham.


Field Officer, Chris Drake, will be hosting an evening bat survey at Haydons pond. This habitat has previously been improved by our wonderful volunteers, so hopefully we will detect bats in the area. This survey will be held in one location, so please bring along a comfortable chair to use for the duration of the event.

Please bring your own earphones/ headphones to use with our bat detectors, and remember to bring your own filled water bottle and additional warm clothing. See our full COVID-19 volunteering policy here.

Due to COVID-19, our team leaders will need to keep track of the numbers of attendees.
