The walk in more detail

From our meeting point in Uley, we meander through beautiful woodland towards a point where we will hunker down near a large main badger sett, hoping to glimpse badgers as they start to forage for food.

As the light fades, we continue to follow the beech woodland path to a spot where the air is regularly filled with the hoots and screeches of tawny owls. We will pause here to wait and see if we get to see these majestic birds swooping overhead. Will be lucky enough to actually watch owls hunting for supper?

As darkness arrives, we creeping out into open fields.

Using a bat detector we can try to identify the bats that we can see and hear playfully swooping overhead, before crossing open fields again to our starting point.

Throughout this exciting evening walk, we will share information about the birds and animals we are hoping to see, along with anything else we discover along the way.

As with all wildlife tours, sightings cannot be guaranteed.

Walk difficulty


Some short hills, but nothing challenging. The pace is very relaxed and is therefore classed as easy for most abilities.
