Wiveliscombe Big Bat Count - 20th Sept 2022

After several postponements due to rain, we finally got a dry night, abit one that cooled off quickly.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came along:

  • 106 records of bats
  • a new common pipistrelle roost found
  • and the rescued brown long-eared bat released itself!
    Overall a very successful night.

Looking at the recordings made, common pipistrelle is by far the most abundant, but we also recorded confirmed soprano (pygmy) pipistrelles, serotine, myotis (species) and one faint lesser horseshoe recorded by the old brewery near the entrance to Yew Tree Antiques.

You can see all the results on the map on the iNaturalist website: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/wiveliscombe-bat-survey-08-22?tab=observations&subtab=map

My sincere thanks to all, and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did.
