Bat Inspection

Had a fascinating day out at nearby Addington Hills taking part in a bat box inspection. We found 30 bats in total of two species; Brown Long-eared Bat and Noctule Bat. This represents an increase in the bat population using the boxes from last year and all the bats weighed in okay and looked overally pretty healthy so.. all good.

Nice one Pete - some cracking shots there of species you rarely see in such detail. Will try and call you before Lesvos.
