A little while ago I mentioned that the group had a bat box project lined up for this summer.
Well I can now reveal that the project is set up with 50 woodcrete boxes being put up in the largest of Bedfordshire's woodlands.
These boxes will be left to weather in over the summer, probably being checked once this year.
The plan is no then check these the following summer roughly once a month.
For those without experience of seeing wild bats up close and for those training for their licence this will be a great opportunity to gain handling experience.
There is also a good chance of seeing species such as brandts Myotis brandtii or barbastelle Barbastellus barbastella
Once the first check is complete I'll bring an up date.
