It’s been quiet on the blog front, but it really hasn’t been for us. This is the time of yer when we find ourselves doing a lot of talks. We’ve done five recently and have several more in the pipeline
The bat group also gets e mail enquiries and we were recently contacted by a parent who runs the Southill Lower School Gardening Club.
She wanted to do something about bats and was wondering what bats were present tin the school catchment area which ran from Southill to Broom and from Stanford to Old Warden. Bob was able to tell that her that this was an area with a lot of different bats although some were quite elusive ( we have records for 10 different species in this area).
She contacted us again recently
“I would just like to thank you again for the information on the bats. I ran my session on bats yesterday and the children were fascinated by the information I was able to tell them about Southill and Old Warden. I was also able to provide a display on each of the 10 bats in our locality thanks to your advice. We then created a bat banquet as part of the national Wild about Gardens Week (Wildlife Trusts / RHS) and the children are all very enthused about bats. I attach a picture of our planted up bat banquet and I will be sending out the details of Beds Bat Group website to the parents soon.
Thank you for taking the time to help us
This kind of feedback is always welcome and we loved the photo she sent.
