Bat boxes

Over the next few weeks new bat boxes are to be installed on selected trees across the campus, hopefully our resident bat population, which are protected under law, will use them as summer roost sites as they forage round for food. We have recorded six species of bats across campus including noctule, common, soprano and nathusius pipistrelle, serotine and brown long eared. With the mixed habitat around campus there are probably more yet to be recorded, so these boxes will help us to monitor what we have on site and help to protect these fascinating mammals.
