Steve Lucas, of the Bats Conservation Trust, kindly led a group of adults and children, along the Swansea Canal on Friday at dusk. He preceded it with a shsort talk on what we could expect to find and lots of other information. Everyone was provided with bat detectors and given advice and more information throughout the walk. Four species of bats were identified – Daubentons, Common Pipestrelle, Soprano Pipestrelle and Noctule. Everyone really enjoyed the experience and below are the print outs of the sonograms. (You will have to click on it).

Steve is arranging for bat monitors to be placed along the canal at specific points to enable a record to be made over the course of a week. We are very pleased to have made this link with Steve and the Bat Conservation Trust.
