Batting for Stillington

Habitat at Stillington

Durham Bat Group has been visiting Stillington Nature Reserve to scout out possible sites for bat boxes. The reserve is on the site of a former steelworks and used to boast an impressive 100 ft slag heap.  Woodland and wetland habitat was created in the 1990s, providing excellent foraging for bats, but because the trees are still immature, there are not many roosting opportunities. We hope to rectify that in due course and help add some bats to the reserve's interpretation board.

What, no bats?
