Bat survey season

24th June 2016

Engain's ecology team is now pleased to offer comprehensive services for all development and planning requirements involving bats.

Being highly protected and threatened by development, any design, planning consent or works where bats may be present must be overseen by a suitability qualified and licensed bat worker.

Engain has several qualified ecologists able to help clients with their developments. Ellie recently obtained her Natural England Level 2 Bat Licence, allowing her to enter hibernation roosts, use an endoscope and handle bats.

As part of this year’s busy bat monitoring season, Ellie has been working with a local bat conservation group, to help carry out its regular species checks.

These photos were taken at Collin Park Wood, a Gloucestershire nature reserve and ancient woodland, home to several protected species. The Gloucestershire Bat Group undertakes conservation and education projects, to promote interest and understanding of these native species.
