Hartsholme Bats

Bat surveys were carried out along a length of footpath at Hartsholme Country Park on behalf of Lincoln City Council. A transect survey showed that six different species of bat are commuting and foraging around the footpath and the adjacent areas of wet woodland and open water. The species recorded on site were common pipistrelle, soprano pipistrelle, brown long-eared, Daubenton’s, barbastelle and noctule.

Botanical surveys were also carried out, yielding many notable woodland species including broad buckler-fern, male-fern, lady-fern, common dog-violet, common figwort, enchanter’s nightshade, greater stitchwort, lesser stitchwort, skullcap, three-nerved sandwort, wild strawberry and wood false-brome.
