Waterway Survey 2015

Based on the data received for 2015, 300 volunteers carried out the Waterway Survey at 340 sites. This survey involves walking along a 1km stretch of waterway and counting Daubenton's bat passes. This species was recorded at 276 sites (81% of sites surveyed). 

The distribution of sites surveyed and Daubenton's bats recorded is shown below. Note: Where Daubenton's bat was "not recorded" during the 2015 surveys it does not necessarily imply that the species is absent from the area.
