On Friday morning Jeremy and I joined Steve at Moor Green Lakes for the annual bat box checks. It was a beautiful sunny day which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were lucky enough to see common pipistrelles, soprano pipistrelles and two Daubenton’s. In total we recorded 9 bats which Steve identified and sexed.
In the afternoon we headed to check some new bat boxes put up earlier this year at Wharf Copse (Wellesley woodlands). Unfortunately no bats had moved into their new boxes which was no surprise to Steve as they do have to learn to recognise and get into new boxes.
