Rare Bat Ramblings around Rochdale

Venue: TBC – Rochdale and Surrounding AreasThe hunt for the elusive Nathusius pipistrelle continues this year. We have records of this rare bat species in the Rochdale area and are keen to find out where they like to hang out. We will be doing bat detector surveys around areas where the habitat may be suitable. Although we are focusing on Nathusius, we will very likely come across a range of other species and these records will contribute to our group database and our knowledge of how bats may be using our area.Great for people of all surveying ability; a relatively good level of fitness is required for survey walks.

South Lancashire Bat Group is covered under a Public Liability Insurance policy, but no Personal Liability is covered. Anyone taking part in bat group events, including bat box
checks, bat walks and hibernation site checks, does so at their own risk. South Lancashire Bat Group recommends the wearing of gloves and an up to date rabies vaccination when handling bats, which should be carried out in accordance with the current guidance from the Bat Conservation Trust.

Throughout the winter, various Hibernation surveys will be arranged, however these are by invite only

Also training workshops are available to members. Due to previous issues over these events they are not directly advertised, as they are intended for group members to expand their knowledge and provide better understanding of bats and increase skills to benefit bat conservation through the bat group. The workshops are not for consultants.
