We had a good turn out for the bat field visit. Our host, Rob Bell from the South Yorkshire Bat Group, was most informative. Giving us a insight to the bats roosting and breeding habits, as well as information on what their group does in monitoring and conservation.
Following on from the presentation in November by Rob Bell about local Bat roosts , he is leading us on a field visit to a roost on Monday morning 21st January. Rob is an ecologist and licenced for bat roosts.
We are meeting in the car park at Oxspring at 10.15am, ready to set off for 10.30am. We will be walking for a mile along the TPT and then down a bit of a rough footpath. The car park (SE 272019) is just a little down Sheffield Road from the Wagon and Horses Pub.
Please let us know if you intend coming.
