Meet at top of the public road north of Givendale Head Farm at SE 8944 8770 at 19.45. There is a drive to the site through the forest so please make sure you let Nick Gibbons you are coming so as not to leave anyone behind.  We know here is some good bat activity here and Noctules have been found roosting in the nearby bat boxes. Again the plan is to erect some additional boxes at the farm depending on what we find.
