Woodland bat roost field day - Trowbridge

  04/08/2017
Last Updated:  04/08/2017

Western Branch presents a Bats field trip for arborists with an interest in learning about how bats use trees.

Wednesday 30 August 2017
Start: 10:00am
Finish 1:00pm

Limited to 10 places

Cost: £5 (to be collected on the day)

Email Jim Mullholland jim@eco-arb.co.uk to book a place. First come, first served basis.

The aim of the day is to encourage debate around management of trees which have potential to support roosting bats. The audience will be a mixture of ecologists, foresters and arborists.
The day will comprise a brief introduction to the site and project followed by a tour of the woodland, including the inspection of a number of known roosts. The majority of roosts are low level and participants will be given the chance to use endoscopes to inspect roost features (under supervision of a licensed bat worker).
