Hatfield Forest Bats.

On the evening of the 17th May eight members of the BSNHS joined with the Essex, Herts and Middx Bat Groups to survey the southern end of the forest. It was a most unprepossessing evening with a chilly northeast wind. We surveyed Emblems Coppice and recorded Pipistrelles 45 and 55, Serotine and Leislers bats. On the forest plains Noctule was added to the current list bringing the number of species in the forest up to 10. I have included some recordings made on a bat detector. There is a suggestion that there may be a second meeting on the 26th/27th July. If you are interested please contact me through the usual route.
