Bats in the Belfry

Dave Long will be carrying out a bat survey at St Radegund’s Church during the week 8 – 14 August. This is part of a nationwide ‘Bats in Churches’ survey run by the Bat Conservation Trust (BCT). Surveys are weather dependent and are intended to see if bats roost in the church, where they roost, what species are present and in what numbers. BCT will provide some equipment and David will also be using a variety of bat detectors from work. If anybody is interested in helping with the survey and finding out more about our local bats, please contact Dave at 11 Beech Close or tel. 07748 961513.
