The rare Lesser Horsehoe Bat is a skilful flier, along with the Whiskered, Natterer’s and Long Eared Bat, can be found flying through the woodland or over the main lake, Llyn Pwmp. Starting with a short introduction, we will then head out in search of bats as they emerge after sunset in the Dingle.
