Bat Survey Season Starts in May

The bat survey season for activity surveys starts in May. Bat surveys involve  surveyors observing a development site at dawn or dusk to watch for emerging or returning bats. The Bat Survey Guidelines recommend that surveys should be carried out between May and mid September.

Our licensed bat specialists are able to undertake all aspects of bat survey including initial bat scoping surveys, dusk emergence and dawn re-entry flight activity surveys and remote monitoring. We have several years experience in the design and implementation of mitigation strategies including the construction of bespoke bat roosts, bat exclusions and roost enhancement, as well as applying for European Protected Species licences.


More information about bat surveys and survey techniques can be found in our blog articles:
