Home / Bats in Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire has recorded 12 species of bat since the 1970s:

Daubenton’s bat
Whiskered bat
Brandt’s bat
Natterer’s bat
Leisler’s bat
Common pipistrelle
Soprano pipistrelle
Nathusius’ pipistrelle
Brown long-eared bat

Many of our species are spread throughout the county whilst others have more restricted ranges.  Two species, Nathusius’ pipipstrelle and Barbastelle, are very recent additions to Nottinghamshire’s bat fauna and the serotine has only been recorded once.
