Look in wet areas - such as old marshes.

It's seem fussy about sites in inland areas? The only time I saw Short-winged CH was on Rush stems in a wet patch near a pond at Otmoor SSSI near Oxford. (Long-winged CH abundant at numerous sites throughout county). A bat detector could help? Good luck.

Thanks Steve, have detector,

Thanks Steve, have detector, have a boggy patch with soft rush in the field will look there. Trying to record everything I have on the field attached to the house, trying to stop the council re-developing it.
Thanks again.
