Going batty

Local residents supported by the Somerset Small Mammals Group have been spending late evenings together. A pleasure, we’re sure, but there is another purpose – listening and looking for bats!

The results of their survey will form part of the Biodiversity part of the Heritage Project and will complement other surveys looking at ornithology; flora; trees; insects; small mammals; and invertibrates, crustaceans, amphibians and reptiles.

If bats interest you then why not join us for the last Bat Walk of the season this Saturday, 22nd September? We meet at 7pm in the Darshill car park and warm clothing and a torch are advisable.

In May seven types of bat were heard on the provided bat detectors, so lets hope we will be as lucky this time!!!

We’d like to get some idea of numbers attending, so please let Jane Williams know you’ll be there by Friday 21st by email at westcountryjane@gmail.com

Please note the Bat Walk will be postponed to Saturday October 6th, if the weather is bad on September 22nd. So do keep an eye on this blog!!
