Somerset has 16 of the 17 species of the resident British Bats. Some species are common in Somerset, while others are endangered. The Bat Group is actively engaged in varied activities to help preserve these fascinating creatures, which are under great threat.
The bat group runs many events and surveys, including community Big Bat Counts. Several of our members run Bat Walks in the Summer. We give talks to local groups, install and check bat boxes, and take part in many national bat monitoring and local surveys. During the Winter we hold workshops and courses in Bat Care, Analysing Bat Sound, and Bat Identification.
We cover the county of Somerset, the Avon Bat Group, cover the former county of Avon, including North Somerset, BANES and Bristol.
