RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire

As part of a development to train and accommodate pilots for the Typhoon fighter aircraft, a colony of common pipistrelle bats needed to be re-housed on the site.

After carrying out surveys and designing the mitigation scheme, we secured a Natural England licence and oversaw all works to create 2 new bat towers.  This has been a highly successful scheme with both towers being adopted by the bats within a few months of construction.
