Dark Skies, the Moon, and Wildlife of the Night

The Cairngorms Astronomy Group gives a brief introduction to the Dark Skies and what can be seen from Glenlivet Estate. We will also talk about the importance of night-time for wildlife.

Followed by a short walk to look at the moon through binoculars while learning all about it. We will be using bat detectors to see if we can discover some of our local flying mammals.
