Craig’ London blog> Craig’s Kensington Gardens review  I’ve written a review and posted some photos on my blog

Here's your chance to observe the cute little bats that live around the grounds of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. With a bit of luck you'll be able to see at least three different species feeding over the water: common pipistrelles, soprano pipistrelles and noctules.

Bat detectors will be used so their echo-location calls wil become audible to the human ear, and owl calls may add to the overall atmosphere.

The nocturnal stroll will last for around an hour and a half, so make sure that you come prepared with suitable clothes and footwear.
