    Dr. Linton has been leading extensive field research there into the social dynamics, survivability, roost movements, etc of the Natterer's, Daubenton's and brown long-eared bats using the Schwegler bird boxes in the woods, mainly via ringing. She has kindly offered us the opportunity to visit Wytham woods to learn about her project and help with the fieldwork. This is from 10am until 4pm on Saturday 13th July. This will involve checking the boxes with Danielle and helping to 'process' the bats, with the data recorded contributing to their extensive study.

    There are no formal costs for the trip although there will be travel expenses and we hope to make a donation to the project. Travel will involve car sharing and a 7am start from Notts.
