Bat Mitigation Training North Wales

I am spending two and a half days at Plas Tan Y Bwlch, Snowdonia National Park study centre. The course is designed for consultants and others dealing with bats and covers measuring success, compliance and reporting. Although not a consultant, the content is applicable to my work at Styal.

Today, we have been out to a road construction site to view mitigation work that included the installation of three bat culverts to get bats (and otters) also a high level crossing for bats, across a busy road. We looked at the potential for success of this project. All very interesting. We then visited a small church with a roost of lesser horseshoe bats. Work had been carried out to enable the bats to easily access and egress the site.

 Here's the family that lived at the Plas around the1890's and the house itself. Well cared for and and a great venue for a study centre.
