Volunteer Bat Surveyor
When We Need You
From 06/09/2006 onwards
The sight needs to be visited on at least four reasonably still summer evenings. The surveyor will slowly walk through the sight from one end to the other looking for flying bats. The species and an estimate of their numbers will be recorded. A bat detector can be provided to aid in identification. The behaviour of the bats may offer clues as to where they are breeding or roosting. Breeding/roosting structures will be marked on a map of the reserve as well as the general location of the flying bats.
