Going a Little Batty…for Habitat

Along with the new creek line development, a project has been underway to design and manufacture microbat habitat boxes for placement in some of the tree stags. Led by the very inventive and creative Graeme McAlpine, several boxes have been built using timber recycled from Cape building sites (thanks to the Spano’s). Based on personal observations of microbat behaviour, the boxes have been designed for both warm and cool weather and include snuggly socks (thanks Jeannie H for the darning) for the bats to ‘hang-out’. It will be interesting to see how they work in coming years – the bats are about; we just need them to take up residence!
