Bat Man

When Roy Cropper told Tony Gordon that bats are protected by law in the UK, he was quite correct.

According to the Bat Conservation Trust web site:

You will be committing a criminal offence if you:

  1. Deliberately* capture, injure or kill a bat
  2. Intentionally or recklessly disturb a bat in its roost or deliberately disturb a group of bats
  3. Damage or destroy a bat roosting place (even if bats are not occupying the roost at the time)
  4. Possess or advertise/sell/exchange a bat (dead or alive) or any part of a bat
  5. Intentionally or recklessly obstruct access to a bat roost

If a bat roost is found, work on a building must stop immediately and the local office of Natural England must be contacted so that an inspector can be sent out to determine what further steps to take.  This can often mean delays and a loss of income for the builders. While everyone was quite annoyed with him, Roy did the correct legal thing.
