Bat walk at Ampthill Park

Ampthill Town Council has recently introduced Dexter cattleĀ  to graze on the wet flush at the bottom of Ampthill Park with theĀ  laudable aim of increasing biodiverity. Last night’s Bat walk there suggests there is already a new species in the park,. The rare and elusive serotine. Bat group members will be checking this out further before the new walk.

(Serotines are associated with grazing animals such as cows and horses as they are particuarly partial to dung beetles.)
