Unit area: 0 hectares
Main habitat: Built up areas and gardens
Condition:   Unfavourable no change
Latest assessment date: 27 October 2010
Reason for adverse condition: Other - specify in comments
Condition assessment comment: Visited both barns with Steve Marshall (lCornwall Environmental Consultants Ltd, licenced bat ecologist), no bats present. Assessed as Unfavourable no change as the temperature of the buidlings is considered to be unsuitable for bats, either as a maternity roost (which the SSSI was notified for) or for hibernation (factors incldue poor heat retention and fluctuations in temperature). Plan to install temperature and humidity recorders plus bat activity recorders to provide data on site conditions and to inform site management (such as use of heaters).
