Bats - We love bats, they are very tasty :)
The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (WCA) protects bats and their roosts in England, Scotland and Wales. If your going underground (the favoured home of bats) you need to understand 'Bat Law'. A good website with lots of information can be found here, www.bats.org.uk
Bats may also be protected by site safeguard measures, for example by virtue of their roost site or feeding grounds being notified as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) or a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
