An evening in Lathkill

AN evening and an early morning walk are planned, this weekend, in Lathkill Dale, led by staff and volunteers from Natural England. Both three mile walks meet at Over Haddon car park, at 7pm on Friday, September 2, and at 8.30am on Saturday morning. No booking required.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. There is a charge of £2 per head for each session. For more information visit the East Midlands page on

Last year those taking part saw and heard owls, tracked bats using bat detectors and, in the morning, found that they had caught moths and small mammals in traps set the previous night.
