The Shropshire Bat Group is a small but active group dedicated to the promotion of the welfare, protection and conservation of bats (Chiroptera) in Shropshire.
Our year starts around October when we start our indoor meetings which include training and lectures for potential 'Bat Roost Visitors' licences.
Early in January we begin our winter hibernacula survey for Lesser-horseshoe bats in some of Shropshires old mines around the Stiperstones area.
This is followed by checking our Bat roosting boxes around the county, this takes us up until the begining of May.
Through out the Summer we are busy with various surveys, projects and bat walks.
September brings us back to the roost boxes to clear out any old bird nests and carry out any repairs.
Records of bat species are always very welcome. Please forward any records to:-
Enquiries about bat records should are dealt with by the Shropshire Ecological Data Network.
