England: Bat Boxes.

England

We have been busy recently making some new bat boxes or our local wildlife park – Jeskyns.

 

Search their website for all the latest –  http://www.forestry.gov.uk/jeskyns  

 

We are starting with 3 boxes and going to see how things progress – but are ready to make more.  Here are a few pictures of the first box.

They have been produced in accordance with instructions on the leaflet of Kent Bat Group.

Well the new homes are there – all we need now is bat residents !

Now we wait to see if we have any success.  In the meantime, our ‘Bee Hotel’ is around 5 years old now.  A new roof has just been fitted as it is still very, very busy; and so the next project is to drill out some new logs and make fresh chambers for the bees to lay their eggs in.

Remember the old pics of the past – Mark and Denise after they had finished with the original.
