This Halloween families are invited to discover the strange things that go bump in the wild at RSPB Exe Estuary nature reserve in Devon with their spooky nature-themed activities.
The Bats at RSPB Bowling Green event on Saturday 16 October is a chance for families to discover the elusive mammals that take to the skies after dark. Led with the Devon Bat Group, visitors will learn all kinds of fascinating facts about their behaviour, ecology, and what makes bats so special.

The event will run from 6.15pm-7.30pm. £8 RSPB adult member, £10 adult non-members. £4 RSPB child members, £5 child non-members. Booking is essential here: bit.ly/bowlinggreenbats
