On Monday the Parish Council installed 10 bat boxes in Weston Wood.
The bat population is under threat and some of the species native to this country has reduced significantly over recent years.
Nigel Cole, a councillor for Durrants Ward and chair of the Leisure, Events and Environment Committee, proposed that the Council should take some action to offer some protection for these unique creatures and a sum of money was budgeted to provide winter roosting. Cllr Cole said, "with advice and support from Herts and Middlesex Bat Group, the Council purchased 10 bat boxes which were installed in Weston Wood, an environment that provides water, tall trees and shelter, all needed by bats to survive until Spring. We look forward to seeing evidence of occupation in due course."
Parish Ranger, Anthony & a volunteer from the Herts & Middlesex Bat Group install a bat box.
This initiative follows on from the 45 bird boxes which the Council installed throughout the village in 2016.
If you see any bats whilst walking through the woods then get in touch and let us know.
