Down to the woods to find bats
INTREPID walkers enjoyed an evening bat walk through the Baxenden woods.
A group of more than 30 children and adults took part in the walk, organised by Sheila McVan of the Baxenden Community Forum.
The next nature excursion, a Fungi Walk, will take place on Sunday, October 14. Meet outside the Alma pub at 1.30pm for a walk around Priestley Clough by local fungi expert Roger Cunliffe. Entry is free and everyone is welcome.
On the Baxenden Bat Walk were Alana Jones, aged nine, Lexie Macfarlane, aged 12 and (front) Lucia Buck, aged six
