Weald Bat Project

The Weald Bat Project has now finished but you can still get involved with evening bat detector surveys at the nearby Thorndon Country Park (as part of the Thorndon Bat Project) :

To participate in the Thorndon Bat Project please refer to our events page for a list of upcoming dates.

However, Weald Country Park remains an important location for  the bat group. We will still be running workshops and events such as assessing trees for bat roost potential  and  use of endoscopes.

All 10 bat species known to be resident in Essex have been recorded at Weald Country Park and over the years the Project has been able to investigate the use of the various woodland habitats by different species and inform the management of the site to the benefit of bats and other wildlife, creating a unique symbiotic partnership between Essex Bat Group and the Parks Ranger Service. A report on the Project is available from Essex Bat Group if you want to read more about the bats of Weald Country Park

Essex Bat Group is grateful for the kind permission, support and co-operation of Essex County Council Country Parks and its staff and to Opal Grants for funding.
