Field Survey 2014
Based on the data received for 2014, 199 volunteers carried out the Field Survey at 231 sites. This survey involves walking a triangular transect within a 1km square and counting noctule, serotine, common pipistrelle and soprano pipistrelle passes.
Noctules were recorded at 112 sites (48% of sites surveyed), serotines at 59 sites (26%), common pipistrelles at 205 sites (89%) and soprano pipistrelles at 122 sites (53%). In addition, Leisler's bats were recorded at 1 site in Northern Ireland.
The sites surveyed and species records are shown in the maps below. Note: Sites are marked on the map at a 10 km spot resolution for ease of viewing. Each spot may contain more than one survey site. Where a species is "not recorded", this refers to the absence of the species during the 2014 surveys within this spot and does not necessarily imply that the species is absent from this 10 km area.
