Bat Walk: 18th July 2022

We had a fantastic time on our bat walk again this week and were excited to get clear recordings of the Noctule and Lesser Noctule bats this time as well as two new species of bat!

We were unable to confirm the Barbastelle this week so we will try again next time.

Here is a list of the species we found on site this week according to the Echo Meter 2 – a wonderful bat detection system that displays the bat calls in real time, translates them into sound we can hear, maps their GPS and auto – IDs the bats.
