Bringing the Chiroptera into one collection..
It is important that 'we' exhibit responsible behaviour towards bats.❤️ http://bats_new.brix.fatbeehive.com/pages/find_your_local_bat_group.html
We should be extremely careful if handing injured bats and NOT normally handle uninjured ones, without a LICENCE to do so.
Bat recording is fine but close-visiting known roosts is not.
BAT GROUPS are in every UK Region, support them.

There is a growing need to support Sonogram Observations with links to external sources and to explain how and why they illustrate the ID Subject.
I suppose actual photos of Bats will be rare here.
