Sad news about Bill Landells

Bill delivering NBMP training July 2012

Bat Conservation Trust was very sad to hear about the passing of Bill Landells in November.

Among his many and varied interests, Bill was a very long standing and active member of the Suffolk Bat Group, a Natural England Volunteer Bat Roost Visitor and BCT tutor. His long association with bats and Thetford Forest in particular – from supporting acoustic surveys and delivering NBMP training sessions for BCT to practical help with bat box checks and hibernacula monitoring – certainly made a difference for bats in Suffolk, and further afield. Such characters are rare and his passing will leave a void in Suffolk and beyond. Our condolences and thoughts are with his family and friends.
