Bat Survey

Wednesday, November 23rd 2022

On Saturday a survey of the 54 bat boxes on the reserve was carried out. Stacey and Jenny gave up their day to visit each box and record their findings. A special endoscope was used to view inside some of the high ones. 

This Pipistrelle was found roosting in a box close to the Field Centre. A special license is required to carry out this work and next year the plan is to carry out a survey in the summer when more bats are likely to be using the artificial boxes.

Many thanks to Stacey and Jenny for monitoring the Foxglove bats. If you adopt a bat box you will receive an update shortly!
