This week at the centre I’ve gotten started with the bat surveys, surveying around the reserve for the endangered sheath tailed bat. No bats have been detected yet, but we aim to complete around 20 surveys over the next few weeks, so fingers crossed! The reserve contains the type of habitat that these bats have been known to forage in so we are hopeful.
Only one terrapin was caught this week, a recapture named Pingu who we last saw just last week! At the centre we’ve had lots of visitors including two little helpers this Friday, who came along on our beach patrol and learnt all about turtle biology.
|We have found a new species!|
We’ve also been continuing with bird surveys and this week we spotted a Blue Seychelles pigeon, it’s nest and also a sun birds nest.
