Harrold Odell Country Park
Harrold Odell Country Park lies 10 miles to the north west of Bedford. It falls within the parishes of Harrold and Odell and lies on the north bank of the River Great Ouse. The Park lies to the east of the Carlton – Harrold road (Odell Road) and the main entrance to the park is off of this road vehicles from Horsefair Lane, Odell.
New for 2017
After a number of years surveying the park itself, this year , we plan to go sightly further field and investigate other woodland sites close to the Country Park. These dates have not been fixed as it depends on which dates we get permission to survey. The plan is to do a mixture of detector surveys and trapping sessions.. Comfy walking shoes and a torch are recommended. We provide bat detectors. Surveys are open to non members,but there may be some restrictions. If you are interested you need to contact Nicky who is a Park Ranger. Tel 01234 718012 E mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Bat Box Project 2017
In 2014 with a grant from the Friends of Harold Odell Country Park paid for the purchase of 10 bat boxes. These are being checked monthly from April to October. Boxes usually take time to be used, but we have been finding bats
We are planning to check the boxes monthly from April though to October in 2017 . Open go Bat Group members, Friends of HOCP & limited no. of guests if pre booked. Meet in the main car park.
To book a place contact Nicky email@example.com

One advantage of HOCP is that we finish the survey with a well deserved slice of cake
