BCT occasionally circulates Special Edition Bulletins focussed on topics such as research, major projects, bats and diseases, etc.

Since 2011 a number of these special edition Bulletins have been made available online. Both the normal Bat Group Bulletins and these Special Edition Bulletins are sent to Bat Group contacts for onward dissemination to Bat Group members.

Please Note: All but the latest Special Edition Bulletin have yet to be added below due to the move to the new BCT website. The historic bulletins will be added in the next few weeks.
