And there was a great turnout despite the damp forecast.
The bat detectors worked overtime across the frequency range.
Here under a known bat roost which didn’t disappoint.
The pond is a great attraction for bats as a feeding area and there were sitings of many bats as well as constant echo locations across the range.
Even the rain didn’t put the bats off their hunting along the carriageway. Their echo locations could still be heard loud and clear on the bat detector.
Owl pellets were taken apart to look at the diet of our owls, and the tiny bones of rodents discovered.
All part of our mission engaging, educating and reconnecting people with nature.
