Believe it or not there are seventeen species of bat in the UK and the four most common that you’re most likely to see are:
- Brown long-eared bat
- Daubenton’s bat
- Pipistrelle (Common and Soprano) bat
- Noctule bat
These bats emerge at sunset, the early evening and after dark. They can be distinguished listening to the high frequency calls they make – which is normally beyond the range of human hearing.
