Wildlife enthusiasts are in for a treat at Gibraltar Point this week.

Two special events are lined-up, starting with “Autumn Migration: The Big Day List” on Wednesday, September 11 from 7am to 7pm.

“Is it possible to see 100 bird species in one day?” said a spokesperson. “Join our local experts for all or part of the day. [It’s an] all day, free event including visible migration watch, waders on the estuary, waterbirds on the lagoons and migrants in the scrub.”

Call 01754 898057 for further details.

Then, on Friday, September 13, the reserve will host a Big Bat Weekend event from 7pm to 9pm.

“Join our bat hunt and discover the creatures of the night at Gibraltar Point. As we explore the reserve we will hopefully see bats, owls and other night time creatures,” continued the spokesperson.

The bat weekend is £5, including tea and coffee. Booking is essential on 01754 898057.
