United Kingdom

Over the past century, UK bat populations have declined due to human disturbance, lack of food sources, and habitat loss. With assistance from the Merseyside & West Lancashire Bat Group, we have discovered a number of regionally important species that live within the Knowsley Estate and utilise the range of resources we have here using a range of bat recording devices and equipment.

As part of our long-term bat population monitoring project excitingly in 2013 we trialled a new detector which identified the calls of the Nathusius’ pipistrelle, a rarely recorded species in the UK. To find out how to join the Merseyside & West Lancashire Bat Group click here
