Bat Box checks – 19th Oct 2019

A great start to the day at Great Breach Wood, with 14 natterers in one box, a noctule and two sop pips in a wooden Kent box, a large mating group of 10 soprano pips.

Unfortunately I smacked a hole in my cars sump dumping oil everywhere. So while everyone else headed over to Ham Wall, I had to make do with waiting for a towtruck. Mixed morning!

Later at Ham Wall, was this lovely group of Daubentons bats which I’m disappointed to have missed. Thanks to Josh Butterworth for the pic!
