It's June, so it must be survey time!

Hi All,

June has finally arrived at last so it's time to get out your bat detectors, torches and midge spray, dust them off and get on out there.   Through June we'll be concentrating on the static roost site emergence counts. The first one is this Friday at Comin Coch and we'll be watching Brown Long Eared, well listening to them more like.  The rest of the month is littered with surveys so check out the programme which can be found on the link to the right of this post.  Same pack drill as usual, if you're not sure email me.

A reminder to new members, you'll need to sign a membership form so remind me when you see me otherwise you won't be insured at all. This is third party insurance and will cover you if you do damage to property where we might be working, not to yourself unfortunately.  You come on these surveys at your own risk.

As to the Rare Woodland Bat Project we've nearly finalised choosing our six woods that we feel come up to the criteria for Barbestelle needs.  Once this is done - hopefully by me by the end of the week -  we need to let the organiser know so we can get a loan of some equipment and some more training. Then we need to do risk assessments -  yawn... It's hoped then that we'll start on these surveys by beginning July and through August - well, that's the plan.

Hope to see you out there.  I won't be chasing you, you'll need to keep an eye on the programme.
