Pewsey Downs Farmers Group awarded Sustainable Development Fund Grant

We are pleased to have awarded Pewsey Downs Farmers Group a Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) grant towards its 'Bats in The Vale' project, enhancing the landscape for bats and collecting data to be shared with other bat and environmental groups. The grant will be used to provide static and hand-held bat detectors. These detectors will be used by supportive farmers and local communities, across the Pewsey Vale. Data collected will be processed on the BTO’s Acoustic Pipeline and the data shared with the Wiltshire Bat Group, South Wiltshire Greater Horseshoe Project and the Wiltshire and Swindon Biological Records Centre (WSBRC).
