Following the bat survey we did in the Park last year (see July 2012 News item) we applied for a grant for installing 23 bat boxes in the lower section of the Park. We had these on display in the carpark last Sunday for visitors to see and play with. Coincidently there was also a bat flying around the lower pond when we had our Workday on 1 December. We will arrange for the boxes to be installed high in specific trees shortly. The presence of bats are a great sign of biodiversity in an area and we would like to foster this in Cefn Onn. Each bat also eats 1000’s of insects every night.
