Being in the midst of the building project to upgrade our reception facilities has created a brilliant opportunity for us to provide even better accommodation options for some of our permanent residents at the secret campsite.
This week Cliff and Ross have been installing ten new bat boxes which are tucked up under the eaves of the new building. These are just about visible from the main photo.
These will be complimented by a batch of bird boxes at the rear of the building over the wood store and i’ll get sone more photos of these when they are up, but here is something that Cliff has made, to whet your appetite.
The aim is to try and encourage even more bats around the site which is full of food for them.
It is also about trying to create space for wildlife and nature around the campsite. This part of Sussex is heavily wooded and a perfect location for a wide variety of bats.
The old reception was quite a sterile building for flying guests, except flies, so hopefully the new bat boxes at the secret campsite will soon be full of happy mammals once the scaffolding comes down in mid april.
