Visitors to the Arundel Wetland Centre will be able to watch bats under the cover of darkness thanks to new equipment.

The night-vision equipment will be on trial from the centre’s corporate partner Viewpoint Optics at the monthly bat walks.

Neil Phillipson from Viewpoint Optics said: “We’re looking forward to the opportunity to add an extra dimension to this already enlightening experience with these mysterious creatures.

The bat walks start with a visit to the reed bed hide to watch the tiny pipistrelle bats emerge from their roosts at dusk.

Bat walks at the centre start on May 12. The walk costs £12 and must be pre-booked by calling 01903 881530.
