Bats roosting in barn conversion

– Troed y Rhiw, Ceredigion

Sympathetic project to convert two redundant barns into holiday accommodation to support the farm’s conversion to organic practices.

The buildings were found to be bat roosts for pipistrelle and brown long-eared bat species. A dedicated bat loft was constructed above a bathroom to provide permanent roosting features for bats at the site. Monitoring access was provided externally to avoid any disturbance of the occupants.
