There are proposals to open up the Ravenscar tunnel to cyclists and walkers. There is little information on bat usage at this site apart from winter hibernation surveys carried out over he last few years. To date a single bat was recorded in 2016 is the only positive. There is a second hand record of the tunnel having a ‘significant’ roost present but this is based on bats seen in the area and may have little to do with the tunnel. This is the first of three visits to determine if there is any use of the site by bats during the breeding season. We shall look at bats in the tunnel and, if sufficient people also look at what bats are using the surrounding area.
Meeting point will be on the road adjacent to the NT visitor centre at Ravenscar
