In 2010 we did a number of surveys in Wardown Park and found it to be a rich habitat for bats.
The museum building itself is a bat roost. There are over thirty little rooms in the loft and we spent much of last two seasons playing hide and seek with them. They alas won hands down
There are large numbers of pipistrelles in the Park and Daubenton activity over the lake is also high. There are also a lot of outbuildings in the park which we think would offer ideal roosting places for bats
Members of the public are welcome to join us on surveys as we try to locate roosts in the park. Meet in the car park in front of museum entrance – enter via New Bedford Road. We can lend you a detector
