Shine a Light on Local Critters at Bat Night

Posted in: 
Operations

What creatures could you see on our torch lit night walk and bat night in Goomalling? It’s not just bats we will be on the lookout for.

Nature enthusiast and night walk leader Joe Tonga says many Australian critters are nocturnal.

“They range from night birds all the way down to the little insects,” he said.

“We will be looking out for wolf spiders (their eyes sparkle like diamonds), all the way up to the large hairy huntsman spiders (beautiful orange glowing eyes).

“Bat detectors will be available to listen for superb hunters of the night sky, the microbats – these are the “Terminators” of the insects.”

The school holiday event takes place on April 16 and will also include a workshop on building bat nests and a barbecue.
