Bat Walk: 29th July 2022

Unlike previous bat walks this one was a quiet one. The main body of bats on the hunt on this evenings were Pipistrelles and they were few and far between across the woodland and park. No new sightings/recordings and no confirmations this time! Fingers crossed for a better walk on Sunday!

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.
