A brief survey was done here in 2017 and four species of bat were identified using the site. The data was used to assist in the gaining of a conservation grant for the site. The survey will aim to identify the best location to site the boxes funded by the grant. Meet at the Cabins car park at SE 7570 9180 at 20.00hrs.
This is an RSPB trip. Details can be found on the RSPB web site.
Rob Stark and Nick Gibbons will coordinate lifts etc taking as few cars as possible but it will be the individual’s responsibility to book and pay for the event.
Please contact Rob Stark or Nick Gibbons if you are interested.
This is a repeat survey from 2017 where we found 3 species of bats but surprisingly no activity over the water bodies where we would expect Daubenton’s bat to be active. The eather was not ideal in 2017 and hopefully we will be blessed with better see what bats are suing the site. Meet at the Forest gate at SE 8006 9636 at 19.30hrs.
This visit will be from Whitby with ‘Whitby Whale Watching’ (www.whitbywhalewatching.net). It is usually a 4hr trip. Details of costs etc are on the web site.
Between Rob Stark and Nick Gibbons we will arrange lifts to Whitby, taking as few cars as necessary. It will be the individual’s responsibility for booking and paying for the trip but we will coordinate lifts, times etc. and ensure the day runs smoothly.
Please contact Rob Stark or Nick Gibbons if you are interested
