Tiny flying mammals. Bats. What is there to say? It turns out, quite a lot – though most people don’t know it. With a number of conservation efforts, bats are slowly becoming more understood, with the carefully balanced ecological role they play in insect control and pollination finally reaching the ears of the masses.
Protected under law, bats still suffer from widespread public ignorance, with their habitats being destroyed unintentionally. Thankfully, there are a few organisations out there committed to ensure that proper care and attention is given by conducting bat surveys that allow us to shine a light on an often difficult to assess situation.
Specialising in bat surveys, Hone Ecology are a company who pride themselves on their detailed bat surveys ability to ensure that all bats are afforded the legal protection that they’re entitled to, as set out in Schedule 5 of the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981.
Thorough in there bat surveys, Hone Ecology set to work to establish the presence of bats in a given locality, and asses the likely absence of bat roosts, using their bat surveys to details of bat activity within tree and buildings. But what are bat surveys?
Identifying important commuting foraging routes in relation to the activity of the bats, the bat survey is a useful tool in terms of being able to provide detailed information and recommend ecological mitigation and enhancement.
Committed to caring for the environment and those delicate ecological systems, Hone Ecology, as well as their bat surveys, also conducts surveys for dormice and reptiles, keeping an eye on the reproductive habits of birds all the while.
