Welcome to the home of the Berks & South Bucks Bat Group

We are a small but active group of volunteers working to help bats across Berkshire and south Buckinghamshire. To find out what we have been doing recently check out our blog.

Our main aims are:
  • To promote and further the conservation of bats and their habitats.

  • To raise awareness of bats and their conservation status.

Our key activities include:
  • Recording and monitoring bat populations in our area

  • Carrying out conservation projects such as bat box schemes, improving roost sites and developing potential sites.

  • Organising talks and educational events throughout the year.

  • Rescuing and rehabilitating grounded or injured bats.

  • Indoor winter talks

Upcoming events

Throughout the year we undertake a range of activities.
