Tell us about your bats
The North Bucks Bat Group maintains the database of all known roosts and sightings in Milton Keynes and Buckinghamshire from The Chilterns northwards. This is done to monitor population sizes and distributions, to target conservation efforts where they will have the best impact and to enable informed decision-making when planning for major developments, taking the needs of the bats into account. All records are welcomed from members and non-members, especially the presence of roost sites.
When submitting a record, please make sure you include the following pieces of information:
- WHO - the name of the person who saw the bat
- WHAT - a description of what you saw, don't worry if you cannot identify the species. Was it a single bat foraging, a number of bats emerging from a roost, etc?
- WHERE - a grid reference is ideal, but an address or location is sufficient
- WHEN - the date you saw the bat
