We All Need Access to Greenspace

Bat Boxes at Cotgrave Country Park

Cotgrave CP Friends Group were successful in receiving funding from Rushcliffe B.C. to purchase Bat Boxes to put up in the Country Park to provide nesting and hibernation sites for the bats we know fly through the park. These have been made by Notts Bat Group volunteers, a great local charity who have run Bat Walks for us this year.
NBG will be helping our volunteers to put up about 30 boxes in the woodland in the park this Sunday 10 October starting from 1000am. If you want to hold a ladder , lift a box, or are just curious then why not pop down and see us?
All the boxes will be numbered and then can be surveyed by NBG trained recorders over the coming years.
Our Friends Group will also be putting up our Gazebo on the “Fun Day Field” alongside Ginger and Blue Coffee. Come and talk to us and why not become a member of our group to help us do more great things to preserve and improve the Park.
