Created February 2012
Update May 3rd  2027

Welcome to the Bedfordshire Bat Group. Please free to explore our site.

May sees the launch of  major new initiative in Bedfordshire ; The Pinpoint Bat Project

We have bought over a thousand pounds of equipment (including a significant donation from two members) to allow members to make their own full spectrum bat recordings in Bedfordshire and get a GPS location at the same time.

This will allow members to make their own recordings. Those lacking the necessary sonogram expertise can return these recordings and others in the bat group will analyse them. We have bought  Peersonic bat detectors,  but the program also accepts data from a Griffin and the Echometer touch .

We hope this will appeal to members who don’t  come out to group events and give us records in areas we have not been to.

You can e mail us at  enquiries(at)bedsbatgroup.org.uk


If you need advice about a grounded bat,

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

Please note the change in number, the old 0845 number has been replaced with 0345. I will gradually track down all the other pages that contain the old number and adjust hem, but for the moment both numbers work

In the meanwhile, you can get some information about grounded bats here

We are regularly updating this website, if you come across problems, do please let us know  by e mailing us at enquiries(at)bedsbatgroup.org.uk ( please replace the “at” with @)
