Bat Walk on Shotover (2012-10-01)

We nearly called it off due to the rain, but twelve Elfins made it to Shotover. There was a great rainbow. Katy and Flora said they saw bats.

We started with a windy, stand up, circle news. Some had to shout to be heard over the wind.

We set off through the wood, Tim nominally at the front and Tegan at the back.

We were aiming for the Sand Pit,

which we found through Izzy's excellent sense of direction.

We climbed trees

and played on the swings

and in the stream.

For the journey back everyone was given a number, so that we could do spot checks in the dark.

When we got back to the car park we lined up in number order.

Rob said there had been loads of bats in the car park!

We ended with the circle song.

Leaders: Tegan, Tim
Elfs: 12
