Bats at Priory
Priory Country Park
When the sun goes down different wildlife comes out to play at Priory Country Park.

You may like to join the Bedfordshire Bat Group, on a bat walk (see the Priory Diary).

A bat walk gives you the chance to:
• See bats in their natural environment
• Listen to bats on a detector
• Talk about bats with Bat Group members

The Rangers are involved with the scientific monitoring of the bats within the park by:
• Looking for bats and recording what we find
NBMP roost count (Soprano Pipistrelle)
• NBMP waterways count (Daubenton’s)

Priory is also home to a bat box project. Find out more here.
