We are pleased to share with you a fantastic write-up by the Bat Conservation Trust about the important work we are doing to help increase bat populations at Silverlake and Lower Mill Estate, as well as the discovery of the Natterer’s bats (Myotis Nattereri) roosting in our Habitat Houses.
“Over the last 20 years, Lower Mill Estate has concentrated its efforts on providing artificial roosting sites for bats by installing bat boxes on buildings, under bridges and at various locations around the site, as well as converting the roof voids of several bin store buildings on site into bat roosts.
Excitingly, in recent months the Estate has discovered that the Habitat Houses on site are living up their name and are being regularly used by roosting bats. The results of the DNA analysis came back as positive for Natterer’s bats.”
Habitat First Group has built an outstanding reputation for our conservation work over the last 20 years and we look forward to another 20 years of proving that ecology and architecture can live together seamlessly in perfect harmony.Back to news
