Ever wondered what type of bat is circling your house or street? Would you like to help us build data on our bats and find out?
The #IoAHC team is holding a week long survey to find out where bats are located on the Isle; how many and hopefully identify the species.
Sadly bats have been in decline over the years as roost sites are decreasing, so this data would be extremely important and will be added to our new interactive project map.
You can request a bat survey pack via email ([email protected]) or download from the link below to complete your own bat survey in your garden, no specialist equipment or experience necessary.
Alternatively, why not join us on a bat walk using bat detectors?
We will be holding several walks across the Isle for community groups and 3 bookable ones for the general public: –
Sunday 23rd September at Crowle, 7-9pm
Friday 28th September at Amcotts, 7-9pm
Saturday 29th September at Belton, 7-9pm
Check out our events page for full details and how to book a place.
