Bat Week 2019

This week of research and study aims to grow our knowledge of the resident bat population on Alderney

The Alderney Wildlife Trust (AWT) are delighted to host the Alderney Bat Week 2019, with Annyctalus Ecology in collaboration with UK based bat researchers and training providers. The aim of the week will be to substantially grow our knowledge of the resident bat population here on Alderney which, thanks to Ani Binet, Mariko Whyte, Anna Sutcliffe and the Jersey Bat Group amongst others, is rapidly expanding. Since 2016 the species list for Alderney has increased by a further 5 potential species to give us the list of Common, Soprano, Nathusius and potentially Kuhl’s Pipistrelle, as well as Grey Long-eared, Natterer’s, Whiskered and possibly Brandt’s bats and a confirmed Barbastelle.

Please see below the programme, there will be other opportunities to get involved but it is probably best t come along on Sunday 21st from 1pm to find out what you can get up to during the week!
