Bat Roost

A recent walk in an unfamiliar area caused us to happen on this structure.  We were initially unsure as to what it was, though closer inspection revealed it to be a bat roost.  As with many other of our wild creatures, bats have had their habitats disturbed and destroyed by human activity to the point where numbers are hugely reduced – to critical levels for some species.  It was therefore heartening to see a local community wildlife trust trying to provide for bats (and other creatures) with this artificial roost and other wildlife friendly installations.

If you’re keen to explore nature and to learn more about what’s hiding on your doorstep, and what we need to take greater care to protect, Steve will be happy to help.  Get in touch for natural history and environmental walks at and on 07796 213817
