News on bat ringing at Pape Station, Latvia

Pape Ornithological Research Centre (University of Latvia Institute of Biology) has been an important bat research site for many decades. Thousands of bats migrate through the corridor between Pape lake and the Baltic sea.
Hundreds and thousands of various species of bats are caught and ringed each year. A number of our banded Nathusius’ pipistrelles (Pipistrellus nathusii) have been found in several European countries, including Germany, France, United Kingdom and Spain, some covering distances larger than 2,000 km!
