In (hopeful) anticipation of work on the roof starting next Spring we will once again be visited this month by John Drewett and team. They will be carrying out surveys in the churchyard this to ensure the roof repairs will not have a negative impact on bats. Previous surveys discovered that whilst the churchyard provided a well-used route for bats on their way to hunt the church roof was used only as an occasional roost by the odd bat. Perhaps they don't enjoy the drafty and leaking conditions any more than we do! Therefore don't be alarmed if you spot people in the churchyard late evening/early morning this month or hear the high-frequency sounds picked up by the bat detectors.
