This will be the autumn check of the bat and dormouse boxes in this lovely Cornwall Wildlife Trust Reserve that is close to the River Inny.

Previous checks have found quite a wide variety of bats, some of which will be handled and measured by trainee batworkers; this gives the rest of us a chance to see them in close-up.

It's a while since we've seen a dormouse here but they are still nesting in a few boxes and we might be lucky this time.

Accompanied children are very welcome but no dogs please because we will be walking across farmland.

The ground is very steep in places so good walking boots are advised.

Hot drinks and homemade cake at the end!

Please share cars as parking is rather limited along the road & up the hill.

Equipment & Booking:
No need to book but share cars if possible.
