Bats are fascinating creatures. They are our only mammals capable of true flight and they also use echo location to navigate. Bats are an ‘indicator species’, and this means by monitoring their populations, we can better understand the wider health of the environment.
You can attract bats to your garden by providing them with good roosting sites, which is becoming more important as their natural sites are fast disappearing. Bats will look for somewhere quiet, draught free and clean. The access needs be no more than a tiny slit or hole. Sheltered positons are more to their liking but they will need a clear flight path. South facing is probably the best direction, though three boxes can be sited on one tree, facing different directions - north, south-east and south-west, and place them as high as possible, at least 5 meters (15 feet) from the ground.
