Maurice Webber Bat Boxes
Our Maurice Webber bat box designs originate from Maurice's work aimed at providing additional bat habitat.
Maurice's range of bat boxes have been used in bat mitigation and research studies by, amongst others; the Middle Level Commissioners, The Vincent Wildlife Trust, British Waterways and the Thetford Bat Box Project.
Over the years we have also provided boxes for bat group projects and conservation organisations including Essex Wildlife Trust, Cambridgeshire and Buckinghamshire bat groups. Bats found in our boxes include noctule, serotine, Liesler's, pipistrelle sp., Natterer's, Daubenton's, whiskered/Brandt's, barbastelle, brown long-eared and in our chimneys lesser and greater horseshoe.
Some of our larger boxes are also suitable for EPS licence bat mitigation. We have built and fitted bat box es for under road decks, in bridges and tunnels, as well as providing pole mounted bat boxes where there is no opportunity to accommodate a bat roost in a suitable building. We also provide bat bricks and boxes for hibernation sites.
All our designs are as eco-friendly as we can make them and therefore improvements in design and materials are continuous - but always with the target species in mind.
Maurice Webber has recently given workshops and talks on bat box construction. There are many products on the market and deciding what to buy can be a complex issue. Knowing what is important to bats, how they choose their roost site, and product longevity, is critical to selecting a bat box.
