Share Naddle Forest at Night

Event Details

Embark upon an evening foray into Naddle Forest, on this fascinating guided event to discover Haweswater's nocturnal wildlife. 

Naddle Forest is home to an abundance of wildlife, much of which roams the gnarly woodland after sunset.

As you search for tawny owls, roe and red deer, badgers, foxes and more, your knowledgable RSPB Guide will share insights into the the sights and sounds of the woodland, including fresh tracks and nocturnal calls. Perhaps you will discover the fresh track of a roaming badger, or hear the echoing bark of a roe deer…

Of course, you will search for the most curious creatures of the night, bats! Using specialist bat detectors you will hear the incredible clicks, slaps and drips of 'bat chat', discovering how each species creates different sounds when hunting. Haweswater supports a diversity of different bat species, and your RSPB Guide will be on hand to enthusiastically share their knowledge on these truly unique mammals.

Returning to Naddle Farm, you can enjoy hot chocolate and biscuits whilst eavesdropping on bats foraging above, and will have the opportunity to find out more about the wildlife and work of RSPB Haweswater.


Adults: £12

Adults (RSPB members): £10

Under 18's: £6

Suitable for ages 10 and above, children must be accompanied by a paying adult. Pre-booking is essential.


Where is the meeting place?

Your RSPB Guide will meet you at the RSPB Haweswater office, Naddle Farm. The full address is detailed in the event description. 

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Unfortunately public transport to Naddle Farm is unavailable.

There is some parking available at Naddle Farm for those driving. Simply drive up the Naddle Farm lane until you reach the farmhouse (the RSPB Haweswater offices), where you RSPB Guide will be waiting for you.

Is this walk suitable for families?

Yes, we would welcome families to join us on this walk, however please be aware that some of this walk will include a guided walk through Naddle Forest at night. We would recommend it is most suitable for children aged 10 and above, however please contact us with any enquiries about this.

If you have younger children, our Wild Families: Bats and Bears events would be more appropriate, and just as fun!

What should I bring with me?

You are not required to bring anything, however you may wish to bring a light rain jacket and your own small torch if you hav one, however torches will be available. If you have a bat detector, feel free to bring it along too!

Are toilets available on site?

There is a toilet at Naddle Farm available before we set off for the walk, and we will return to the farm after around one hour.


How can I contact the RSPB Haweswater with any questions?

RSPB Haweswater

Nestled in the folds of Haweswater’s dramatic landscape lie pockets of wildness; alpine plants cling to cliffs and ledges, whilst woodland birds, red squirrels and badgers teem in the woodlands. The quiet, rugged charm of Haweswater sets it apart from many of the more popular Lake District honeypots, offering opportunities for seclusion and wildlife encounters unlike any other in the National Park.

This brand new collection of RSPB guided events have been designed to offer a facinating insight into the diversity of wildlife in this beautiful corner of the National Park. Discover more about the work of the RSPB and United Utilities at Haweswater by visiting the link provided.
