AWT gets out the Batmeters at Kelston

See this below from recent AWT bat survey.

Our plan is to work with Bath Spa University and reach out to schools and to get a series of conservation projects going. First of all we need to get a clearer grasp of the range of plant and wildlife on the site.

The survey last Thursday was the best I’ve been on for wildlife for some time – several Serotine bats were foraging around the ash tree and we also recorded common pipistrelle, noctule, brown long-eared and lesser horseshoe either commuting or foraging over the site. There was a little owl perched in the western gable end, which seems to be a regular visitor looking at the evidence in the main barn too. I think it probably roosts and may even have nested this year in the wall itself (accessible from the alcove in the western gable).
