Bats live in the countryside, towns and cities across the UK. They are most active in the summer months when they come out of hibernation, hunt insects, give birth and raise their young. You are more likely to see bats around sunset or sunrise in warm, dry weather. Some bats fly high in the sky while others fly low over water, some prefer grassland while others stick close to hedges and trees.
You could have bats right on your doorstep!
