Bats are a protected species in the UK.
Bats were found while starting the work on the new Global Leadership Centre.
The critters, which are harmless to humans, were discovered to be nesting within the roof of the old Osney Power station, which is being redeveloped to house Saïd Business School’s new executive education campus.
Bats are a protected species in the UK, meaning their breeding sites and resting places have certain legal protections. They commonly roost within caves, tree hollows and, just like at Osney which was built in 1892, old buildings.
