The wood is near Trebullett in Lezant parish above the river Inny. Meet by the entrance at SX322774,  just off the road where you can park on the hill.

Inspecting bat roosts

These visits to this beautiful wood in May & October each year serve to mark the changing seasons. This is a Cornwall Wildlife Trust reserve but not open to all so we are invited to join the bat group as they check the bat boxes and roosts.

Steep in places with uneven ground so walking boots/poles recommended.

We finish in LAPWG style with hot drinks and homemade cake at about 4pm.
