Welcome to the redesigned Bedfordshire Bat Group website.
We knew that Internet Explorer played havoc with the previous layout and hopefully this new more stylish design will help.

It should now be easier to navigate your way around the site using the drop down boxes. Most of the original content is here and in an attempt to get into the 21st century we have added a blog.





If you need advice about a grounded bat, please contact the Bat Conservation Trust’s 24 hour helpline on  0845  1300 228



You can also  follow the Bedfordshire Bat Group’s activities on our facebook pages.
