Results from the last two pip counts

The 6th of July results are a bit weird so any coment would be appreciated! Although the weather was fair; no rain, only a light breeze and 15c, there was quite confusing behaviour. The first bats were already emerging at 9:20 and continued to exit until after dark. The total count however was only 162 bats yet there was still plenty of activity in the roost to be heard. The count on the 14th was more clear cut despite the heavy rain for the first 20 mins. 434 bats were counted out between 9:15 and 10:15 after which the bats began to return and it grew too dark to see.

We still hope to revisit the Long Eared roost in Aug and try to get together for a bit of fun later in the summer so keep your eyes on the blog.
