Bat talk - A Woodland Bat Project by Denise Foster - Zoom

In 2011, a major clear felling programme took place in a North Bucks woodland, which had a significant effect on Natterer’s survival rates. This raised concerns about bats in other woodlands managed for timber, so in 2013 the Herefordshire Woodland Bat Project commenced.  The aim is to ‘Compare the Biodiversity of Bat Species in Managed Plantations with Deciduous and Ancient Woodlands’. 

Between 2013 and 2019, 30 woodlands were surveyed, using various techniques. This has resulted in some interesting discoveries such as finding Barbastelles in 24 out of 30 woods. 

Join us for a talk by Denise Foster, to hear about the challenges and achievements of the project so far. 

Denise started working with bats after hearing a talk hosted by Worcestershire Bat Group in 2007.  In 2011, she was granted a Level 2 bat licence and is now a fulltime volunteer bat worker.  After gaining valuable experience working with the North Bucks Bat Group and the Wytham Project in Oxfordshire, Denise returned to Herefordshire and set up many bat research projects in the county.  Although Denise now lives in SW Wales, she continues to carry on bat research in Herefordshire as well as leading the Wales Nathusius Pipistrelle Project for BCT.
 
The talk will be delivered online using Zoom. Everyone Welcome!

£3 for Warwickshire Bat Group members & £4 for non members.
