May 2021 saw the first ever Bat Group Mingle virtual event, with the aim to provide a gathering place (online) for any member of a bat group to join together to seek advice and share experiences. There are almost 90 bat groups in the UK who collectively have experienced many situations that might be common to other groups, so by providing this platform BCT hopes to promote networking and connections between the bat groups of the British Islands.
Next mingle TBC
The previous mingle was hosted by the Central Scotland Bat Group on Tuesday 1st March at 7pm, discussing National Nathusius Pipistrelle Project, bat group management – bank accounts, email enquiries, membership systems etc. and SARS-CoV-2 biosecurity best practice
THIS WAS NOT A TALK by the bat group, so any group was welcome to share their expertise, not just the hosting group.
