Meet at Low North Camp at SE9474 9522. Drive through metal entrance gates on left after going over river and park in bays on left.
We hope to cover at least 6 points of this site and the results will be utilised to decide where to locate some bat boxes. A survey in 2017 identified at least 5 species of bat using the site.
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.
This is the second visit for this site which has been shown to have a good range of bats. As before enter the site through the metal gates on the left after crossing the stream and park in bays just down the concrete road. Entrance is at SE 9474 9522
