As the bat season comes to an end we have begun collating all the Pinpoint Bat records we have collected from April to September this year. Ths is not the complete data set as there are some files to be anaysed. This map shows the distributon of bat recordings in the county We estimate we have made 40,00 recordings. This data has been colleted by some 20 bat group members who did surveys.
Any guesses as to what we are going to be doing over the Winter?

If other bat groups would like a copy of the Pinpoint Bat Program (This will be unsupported), please get in touch. NB this program does not do Auto ID but it sure speeds up the process.
Please contact the Bat Conservation Trust’s 24 hour helpline on 0345 1300 228. They will contact us and we will try to help. All Bat carers are volunteers, so please do not expect an immediate response
