WILDLIFE PROJECT

Friends of Goostrey Nature too.

 

At present Friends of Goostrey Station are trying to make the area a more wildlife friendly site. Bird and bat boxes were carefully erected earlier in the year, so we  are delighted that Pipistrelle bats have been identified using a bat detector and nesting blue-tits have been spotted. The various species and habitats are being recorded using a Geographical Information System with software that creates maps.  In the future, plant species that encourage wildlife will be introduced. 

In June, the cubs held a meeting at the station and helped to make three hotels for bugs and bees.

See what you can spot using the below maps. We truly hope to have much more to share as the animals decide to move in!
