Hi Penny

We live in a bungalow and the bat box is just under the eves above the living room window on a south facing wall. Our TV is in the same corner of the room on the inside as the bat box is on the outside, they don’t need high walls or quiet locations.

We went on a one day bat ecology course at our local wildlife trust met some bats and learnt a lot including how to identify bats using a bat detector and how to tell their poo from a mouses poo urgh (how – well a bats crumbles, a mouses smears hmmm) on the subject of poo again – really need to get out more! We know they are pipistrelles by the frequency on the bat detector and the noise made.
