Event Overview

Friday 13th September 2019 7.30pm -10.30pm

Creatures of the Night

Join Ely Local Group and Ely Wildlife Watch as they investigate the night-time denizens of Roswell Pits.

Although humans tend to head indoors as darkness descends, sunset is the cue for much of our wildlife to emerge.

Using bat detectors and moth traps we aim to discover what creatures can be found around Roswell Pits once night has fallen.

Previous searches in the area have revealed good numbers of bats, including Daubenton’s, a relatively large species which can be viewed skimming over the water.

Numerous species of moths have also been recorded, including the stunning Elephant Hawkmoth, beautiful Burnished Brass and wonderfully named Setaceous Hebrew Character.

Meet at the Fisherman’s Car Park, Willow Walk, Ely.

FREE event but donations appreciated.
