Yesterday the Ecology team at Place Services volunteered on behalf of the Essex Bat Group to rescue a Common Pipistrelle bat which was stuck in Essex County Council's County Hall. The bat was successfully released that evening, in a nearby location, after a check-up for injuries.
If you ever discover an injured bat in Essex then please contact the Essex Bat Group and they will arrange for the bat to be collected and taken to a specialist bat carer. For other counties, please contact Bat Conservation Trust Helpline (0345-1300-228) directly.
