Field Survey 2016

Based on the data received for 2016, 188 volunteers carried out the Field Survey at 223 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 97 sites (43% of sites surveyed), serotines at 54 sites (24%), common pipistrelles at 203 sites (91%) and soprano pipistrelles at 115 sites (52%). 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: Where a species is "not recorded" during the 2016 surveys it does not necessarily imply that the species is absent from the area.
