BAT DETECTOR TRAINING EVENING
We plan to run a basic training
evening for those new to bat detecting on
18th May, with 19th, 24th and 26th in
reserve in case the weather is bad.
Wharf Road is off Woodbridge Road, along the southern side of the cricket ground. Go to the end of Wharf Road, through the National Trust gate on the right (if the gate is locked when you get there someone will be along soon to open it), along a roadway over speed bumps to the car park on the left. We meet in the tea-room there. All meetings start at 8:00 pm.
Although we have been unable to meet due to the Covid emergency, we hope to resume for winter 2021/22. If not, we will organise on-line meetings via Zoom. Details will be posted here as soon as available.
HIBERNATION SITE CHECKS
*** All checks are suspended for winter 2020/2021 to avoid the possibility of transmitting Covid viruses to wild bats. We'll post more updates as soon as available. ***
The Box Hill area 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 over about 4 hours.
SHOWS & DISPLAYS
Event details will be published here as soon as they are known.
The group usually undertakes a
number of bat surveys each year.
BAT BOX CHECKS
Surrey Bat Group leads a number of
bat walks each summer, often for organisations such as the National Trust. They
are usually held between May and September.
