May is here


May is pretty much round the corner now and the bat season proper is about to kick off, 29th April sees the first of the seasons woodland surveys in Luton. Its an unknown to the bat group but has promise, the guides (owners of the woodland) have given permission to mist net and do detector surveys.

I'll bring an update to you when the survey is complete.

Bat Season Finally Begins

Just a quick reminder that the bat season offically starts on Monday the 4th April, the first regular survey of the season will be taking place at Stockgrove CP meeting in the usually place at 7.15pm. Martin
Danny Fellman has been busy in the north of the county. Here he has put up a bat box of my design to see if any other species will use it. Its alongside a Kent box and wedge box for comparison. Keep watching this space for details on a scientific bat box project which the group hopes to start this season. We have secured the funding and Bob, Simon and others are looking around the woodland today to finalise the potential locations.
