Video taken in a maternity roost of pipistrelle bats by a CCTV camera installed in the attic of the NP information office in Glendalough. Around 600 bats have been recorded in the roost in 2023, while in the previous years their number sometimes reached 800!

Take a peek inside this busy bat roost and feel free to share any similar videos with the Eurobats Secretariat.

AEcol - Andrews Ecology Ltd:   Bat Tree Habitat Key     

Bat Tree Habitat Key comprises:

  1. An account of how Potential Roost Features (PRF) form, why they form, where they form, why they form where they form, and approximately how long they can be predicted to last;
  2. An account of how bat species native to the British Isles use trees; and
  3. A dichotomous key to potential bat-roosts in trees for use in the formation of a hypothesis used to guide further survey effort, and also an interpretive tool to give a hypothesis of what might have been present, where conclusive evidence has eluded survey.
 The book works through basic tree biology to illustrate how the different features that bats occupy form.

Materials for children on the Romanian Bat Portal (in English and Romanian)
