Pipistrelle bat

Pipistrelle bats can eat up to 3,000 insects in one night! Bats are one of only three British mammals that hibernate – the other two are dormouse and hedgehog.

Where to find

They hunt insects along the canal path and visitor routes and over the meadows.

When to spot

You may spot them at dusk in the late spring, summer and early autumn.
