More bat surveys this week...

Hi all. Thanks to everyone who has helped out with our colony counts so far. There are still plenty to come though, and we will need your help particularly for the Cwm Rheidol counts this week and in July.

The first Brown long-eared colony count is tonight: if you haven't already told Annette that you're coming along, please don't turn up at Somerfield car park tonight as we already have enough people to do the count (it's a very small site and too many people outside the roost may alter the bat's behaviour). There is another count tomorrow evening and I think we may have enough people for that too, but do check with Annette first if you want to come along (there is an email link on this page - don't leave it too late though!).

Looking further ahead (see the 'Programme of events' link also on this page), the second count at Cwm Rheidol is this Thursday night and we could do with some volunteers to help out with this and the two follow up counts in July. I'm appealling particularly to our more experienced bat group members to take the lead on this week's Cwm Rheidol count, and perhaps one of the July counts, to give Annette a night off! Again, please send Net an email as soon as you can if you are able to help out. If you need details of the colony count protocol, just let me know.

As always, please keep an eye on the blog for updates: if the weather turns bad and we need to cancel a survey or a colony count, we will update the blog before 4pm on the day. Please also put the rest of the surveys in your diary so that you can schedule in a bat count or two this season. Keep in touch and see you soon!
