John Hooson (Group Secretary)

Regretfully our website is not available at present as it was hacked a few weeks ago. It may be a while before it is fully reinstalled and operational again.

In a typical year members of our Bat Group’s will:-

  • work with Natural England to give advice and information to householders with resident bats
  • arrange summer evening bat walks and talks in south Cumbria
  • carry out surveys and monitoring work to help determine the health of our Cumbrian bat populations
  • research underground hibernation sites
  • support the National Bat Monitoring Programme by undertaking several of their surveys at various locations around our area
  • organise displays and educational events for children and adults
  • make, erect and check bat boxes
  • hold two planning meetings in spring and autumn where we decide what events members would like to participate in and how to organise them
  • issue two newsletters a year covering our events and other items of note about our bats locally and nationally
  • maintain a database of bat records and undertake data searches on request
