Purchasing a Bat Roost Tree Tag

Purchasing a Bat Roost Tree Tag

The bat roost tree tag will become a known, recognisable tag that will eventually be the industry standard. Each tag will have the wording Bat Roost, a logo and a unique number that relates specifically to the roost. It will display a web page address where it will be possible to access general information about the scheme.

Each tag is 80 mm x 60 mm in size and 1.2 mm thick and is made of anodised aluminium. Silver text is against a blue background.

A charge for the tags and nails is necessary to ensure the scheme is self-sustaining. Postage will be covered by the buyer. Tags can be purchased through the website and multiple tags can be ordered.

We recommend, where possible, a tree roost record is submitted first before a tag is deployed, so we can check that the records provided are sufficient. However, we recognise that there will be circumstances where making two visits in close temporal proximity might make this impractical.

Tag prices

£0.85 per tag inc. VAT, excluding delivery.

Payment

Payment is required before the tags can be dispatched. The buyer can indicate their preferred payment method using the form below. Payment can be made by BACS transfer or Stripe (though buyers should be aware there is a fee charge for using Stripe, so if possible please pay by BACS transfer, so we don't have to pay a fee and the money will go towards our funds for new tags).

If you choose to pay by BACS we will contact you with our account details after checking your order.

To pay by Stripe we will need to send you a payment link after checking your order.

Note: After submitting your order form, please check your junk folders for emails from BCT with your payment details. Some BCT emails haven't been seen, so we have been unable to process some orders.

Delivery

Tags will be dispatched within 3 - 5 working days of receiving your payment.

If paying by BACS transfer, please allow longer for the payment to clear. If you are a VAT registered business, please allow longer so we can raise a VAT invoice.

Postage to deliver is an extra cost, around 0.66 p - £1.53 depending on the weight and the number of tags purchased.

Purchase options

The following purchase options below are available:

For 1 tag & 2 nails - 0.90 p + 2nd class, no tracking(£0.66p) = £1.56

For 3 tags & 6 nails - £2.70 + 2nd class, no tracking (£0.96) = £3.66

For 6 tags & 12 nails - £5.40 + 2nd class, no tracking (£1.53) = £6.93

Please note we have a limited stock of bat roost tree tags and would like to make sure that the tags are available to many rather than a few. Therefore, for now, we have limited purchases to six tags per surveyor, to avoid surveyors stockpiling the tree tags and would encourage that tags are purchased when there are confirmed tree roosts to tag.

If however, the surveyor has more than six confirmed tree roosts that they would like to tag, or there’s a project that requires more tags because of a planned tree survey of a woodland, or a radiotracking survey, we would encourage the surveyor to email us at brtts@bats.org.uk, with the number of tags they would like to order and the reasons why extra tags are needed. We will then consider your request and will be in contact with payment information if your request is accepted.
