New  Bat Season

With the further relaxation of Covid restrictions we are reintroducing some of our surveys to a minimal number of members  where we can do so using social distancing.


At present, there is not a problem with individuals going out to record bats with their own equipment, although this may change if more restrictions are introduced. It may be possible to loan Pinpoint BAT equipment to a few individuals (members) if appropriate precautions are taken. Please contact Bob if you are interested in this.

Details are on the members’ newsgroup calendar and in the newsletter. We will add new dates as we get them

British bats do not carry covid 19 but remember they may carry ELVB which is why it is important you don’t handle the bat in ungloved hands.
