Bat and Moth Twilight Walk

Do you know how many species of Irish bat there are, or how to hear them at night? Have you ever foraged in a hedgerow and discovered its secrets, including our winged friend the moth?

Glenga Valley near Clougherney provides the ideal sheltered looped walk to experience these delights. Walking on quiet, minor roads suitable for all the family, this twilight walk is led by local wildlife educator, Annie Mullan from Butterlope Farm.
