HIBERNATION SITE CHECKS
The checks last all day with a pub lunch and comprise Westhumble chalk mine in the morning with Betchworth and Brockham limekilns in the afternoon, and finishing at Box Hill Fort. Godstone is a series of old mines that we usually do without a break.
BAT BOX CHECKS
Bats are now thinking about hibernation, so our bat walk season is over. The coming season's walks will be publicised here as soon as we have finalised our programme.
Members of the public will usually need to book in advance, and there may be a charge for attendance. Booking instructions for each walk will be shown when 2017 walks are announced here.
SHOWS & DISPLAYS
The group usually undertakes a
number of bat surveys each year.
