Today we joined in the Bat Conservation Trust’s bat monitoring. Steve provided bat monitors and instructed us in the use of them.  They are to be left in position for a week and they will automatically locate their position through their GPS system and turn on and off between dusk and dawn to record any bat activity, and build up a picture of the colonies we have along the canal.  When they are returned to him, Steve will begin the hard work of identifying and collating the information, which we will post on here.
