Small Potential Roost Features: talk and fieldwork with Keith Cohen


Join the wonderful Keith Cohen for a talk about how bats use low level and small diameter tree roosts, followed by an endoscoping session in a nearby woodland. This event is organised jointly by the CIEEM Welsh Section Committee and the Vale of Glamorgan and Bridgend Bat Group.


Keith Cohen, holder of the smallest diameter tree roost record in Henry Andrews bat tree database, will present the results of his extensive roost finding work in Wiltshire. This will cover bats use low level and small diameter tree roosts, and suggestions for how to locate such features.

The talk willl be followed by an opportunity to put the newly learned skills into action with a tree roost search in a local woodland (Bryngarw and /or Blackmill woods). These woodlands are known to support populations of Myotis species with a number of bat group roost records to recheck.
