About me

I got involved with bats when I attended a bat walk in 1994. From the very first moment I heard the bat detector crackle into life and saw a bat fly towards me up the track, I was hooked. I became a licensed bat worker in 1996, and qualified as a bat trainer in 2008.

Over the years, I have worked as a Natural England volunteer carrying out free visits to householders with bats, cared for grounded and abandoned bats, led bat walks for the RSPB, National Trust and a range of other organisations, been heavily involved in the Bat Conservation Trust out of hours helpline, helped in the production of the BCT Survey Guidelines, given lectures, run training courses and generally allowed bats to fill my life!

I am now able to offer a range of bat-related services, so please explore my site and see if I can help you!
