Bat Count


The Bat Conservation Trust are looking for volunteers to help them count bats.

They need to be able to have an idea of how many bats there are, and can only do this with the help of hundreds of volunteers all around the country to count them.

Most of the counting happens after dark and requires expert knowledge to tell the difference between bat species. There is one survey that you can help with though – the Sunrise/Sunset Survey!

To take part in the Sunrise / Sunset Survey you need to get up really early (about an hour before sunrise) or go out at dusk to see if you can spot bats as they are leaving, or returning to their roosts. You’ll need to persuade an adult to go out with you.

Youngsters interested in Bats you can join the Batworker’s Club
