If you need advice about a grounded bat,

please contact the Bat Conservation Trust’s 24 hour helpline on  0345  1300 228. They will contact us and we will try to help. All Bat carers are volunteers, so please do not expect an immediate response

Please note the change in number, the old 0845 number has been replaced with 0345. I will gradually track down alll the other pages that contain the old number and adjust hem, but for the moment both numbers work

In the meanwhile, you can get some information about grounded bats here

We are regularly  updating this website, if you come across problems, do please let us know  by e mailing us at (2011) batsinbeds@fsmail.net
