Bat safari – Evening walkAddress: Porttornet, Hovdala Slott Date: Thursday 3 jun 2021 - Saturday 18 Sep 2021 Show map
Address: Porttornet, Hovdala Slott
Experience the bats Hovdala. An exciting, interesting and fun nature walk on Hovdala at dusk and darkness.
In Sweden, 19 bat species have been found and 17 of them have been seen or heard at Hovdala. Why do so many different bat species thrive on Hovdala? Where do the bats live? What do they eat? How old does a bat become? How can they "see" in the dark?
We walk on trails from the castle to Hammarmölledamm and get answers to these questions and much more. We look for bats and we use bat detectors to listen to them. The walk is quite simple but not wheelchair accessible.
Start and finish at the castle. We meet at the Gate Tower, Hovdala Castle. A simple cup of coffee is included. The event takes about two hours.
Rain! Heavy rain is bad bat weather. However, I do not set any planned bat safari. Except in too bad weather and in that case at the very last moment. Guests who prepaid always receive the money back or offer another date in case the event does not go away.
