BAT SURVEYS  

The group usually undertakes a number of bat surveys each year.
Let  Lynn and Ross know if you are interested in helping out.

BAT BOX CHECKS

The group has a number of well established bat box schemes in the county and we undertake checks of these periodically in spring and autumn.

Please contact Ross or Lynn if you would like to come along. Details will be sent to those on our e-mail list.

INDOOR MEETINGS 

We are very grateful to the National Trust, who allow us to hold our
winter indoor meetings at Dapdune Wharf, Wharf Road, Guildford GU1 4RR. Wharf Road is off Woodbridge Road, between the building site where the Methodist church used to be and the southern side of the cricket ground. Go to the end of Wharf Road, through the National Trust gate on the right (if the gate is locked when you get there someone will be along soon to open it),  along a roadway over speed bumps to the car park on the left hand side. All meetings at 8:00 p.m. in the tea-room there.

Our Indoor Meetings recommence in October. Details will be posted here soon, so keep checking!

HIBERNATION SITE CHECKS

During the course of the winter we carry out a programme of hibernation site checks at various venues throughout the county. Surveys are done during December, January and February.
For conservation reasons places on these visits are extremely limited but please let Ross and Lynn know if you are interested in attending one.

The checks last all day with a pub lunch and comprise Westhumble chalk mine in the morning with Betchworth and Brockham limekilns in the afternoon, and finishing at Box Hill Fort. Godstone is a series of old mines that we usually do without a break.
