Surveying Buildings for Bats

My training on bat conservation and surveying continues.

The Bat Conservation Trust runs several training courses on bats, many of them geared towards professional consultants. The focus of this course was buildings, and you might be surprised at the places bats use.

My team found bat droppings next to exterior signs, on walls, just beneath the small gaps where bats enter buildings, inside barns, and even under garden shelters. We found live bats under weather boards, behind beams and even under the roofing felt of a new garden shed!
