Here are some exciting guided walks organised in Bingley St Ives Estate this year by the Friends of St Ives, one of the local organisations linked to us.
For these events you will need good footwear as pathways are often wet and slippery. Also: please bring suitable clothes for the weather. No charge is made for events but donations to the society are always welcome.
The latest of annual walks to see our population of bats. This will be led by Ian Butterfield and starts at 19:15 at the visitor centre on Friday 7th September. The meetings start with a talk about bats followed by a walk to see some. If you own an electronic bat detector, then bring it along but otherwise you should be able to borrow one. From the small Pipistrelle to the Daubenton’s bats that skim across Coppice pond, they are all a wonder to see. When watching the bats skim across the pond, a powerful hand lamp is useful, so bring it along if you have one.
Coppice Pond is a regular bat spot in Bingley St Ives Estate
