Installing New Bat Boxes

With assistance from the Merseyside and West Lancashire bat group, 25 new state of the art bat boxes have been installed in the woods adjacent to the elephant paddock and at the paddocks in order to monitor and learn more about how native bat species are using the landscape and interacting with one another. The boxes have to be hung pretty high up in the trees, above four or five meters high, sheltered from strong winds and exposed to the sun for part of the day in order for bats to find them attractive homes. The MWLBG will be back later this year to help check whether the boxes have attracted any new inhabitants.
