Bat watching @Wicken Fen

This evening we went Bat Watching at Wicken Fen. I love these amazing creatures. It started with a general chat about bats along side some refreshments. Then we went round the board walk but didn't see much in the way of wild life, but one of the people who work at the Fen gave a very interesting talk about the reserve and introduced us to some of the plant life there. Then we stood near the cafe where there is tiny hole in one of the sides and listened the the bats chatting in the nursery before they began to come out - which was amazing!!! We counted 60 bats out before we decided to call it a night!  Sorry no photos of the bats - they were too fast!
