With the relatively mild winter weather we weren’t expecting anything exceptional on this survey, but numbers weren’t greatly down. Barbastells were few and far between, but we have only found them in large quantities when it is really cold and has been for quite a while.
Once again we were knee deep in Natterer’s which we rarely catch in the summer and the pipistrelles which haunt our nets , were rarely found. They obviously have other preferred hibernation spots
We found the following bats:
unidentified Myotis 8
One of the Daubenton’s was the first ever to be found at Braystone
There were also several nice non bat finds
