The Chavenage Bat Box is a single chamber quality nesting box for bats that provides a roost for a variety of species, e.g.:- Pipistrelle, Noctule, Leisler’s, Natterer’s, Daubenton’s and Brown Long-eared bats. It will fit into any garden, woodland, or a house wall site.
Bats are a schedule 1 protected species under the Wildlife & Countryside Act. It is illegal for any member of the public to disturb a roost, handle or kill any bat. Bat boxes therefore may only be inspected by a licensed bat worker. However, you can monitor your bat box without disturbance, look for mouse-sized droppings beneath the box as a clue to occupation or observe from a distance at dusk to see if bats are exiting the box to hunt.
