Thanks to everyone who came and helped check the bat boxes in the forest. The Cropton boxes had a little bit of use from some Noctules but no bats present yet. Otherwise we managed a total of 81 bats. The highlights were 7 Noctules in a box at Pexton east and the several boxes at Keldy Ponds that had clusters of Natterer’s. A few lucky people also bagged their first sighting of a UK beaver in Cropton Forest. Luckily the weather men were a little pessimistic.
It is now moving into the surveying season and there a few surveys already planned on the calendar plus the Pot luck supper at Throxenby Mere to look forward to.
Hope to see some of you at a few of these.
