Bat Group Talk - Habitat use, Roost use and Social Calls of Brown Long Eared Bats by Stephanie Murphy - The Kenilworth Centre

The Brown Long Eared (BLE) bat, Plecotus auritus, is different from many other UK bats in the way in which it uses its ears to detect prey, but is there anything different about the way they use social calls? The talk will focus on habitat use of brown long-eared bats in woodland, roost use looking at difference between tree roosting and house roosting bats and will look at how brown long-eared bats use social calls.

About Stephanie Murphy:
Stephanie undertook her research on brown long-eared bats at the University of Sussex. She is now the director of Arbeco Ltd which is a company that deals with ecology, arboriculture and habitat management.

Bat Group Talk & AGM - Bechstein’s bats in a Mosaic Landscape by Keith Cohen - The Kenilworth Centre

Keith and a team of volunteers have conducted monitoring studies for Wiltshire Wildlife Trust in the mosaic woodland and arable landscape south of Trowbridge, with checks of the bat boxes, inspection for tree roosts, and week-long summer radio-tracking sessions in 2016 and 2017. This work is revealing some exciting discoveries, including one of the largest recorded maternity roosts in the UK in a hedgerow tree some 500m beyond the woodland boundary and regular foraging in the wider countryside, up to 4km from the ancient woodland habitat.

About Keith Cohen:
Keith Cohen is a Bat Group member and independent consultant ecologist who has worked in ecology and environmental education since 1992, initially in Scotland and more recently in based Banbury. His interest in bats started when the bat group visited to advise him on plumbing repairs without disturbing the bats in his loft … which turned out to be the first whiskered maternity colony known in Scotland.

The evening will also include a brief AGM for the bat group.

Everyone welcome!
