    Barbastelle Radio-tracking

    TBCFlintham (see below)

    Barbastelle bat radio-tracking. If you are interested in assisting Matt Cook with some bat radio-tracking from Fri 27 July then please drop him a line via mattcook@hotmail.co.uk . Matt is planning on catching and radio-tagging a barbastelle (possibly two) at Flintham (or possibly near Lowdham), and then radio-tracking her for a week. He is, therefore, looking for teams of 2-3 people to help locate roosts in the afternoon and / or follow the bats at night following their emergence.

    This is part of the Nottinghamshire Barbastelle Project: https://insideecology.com/2018/01/22/the-nottinghamshire-barbastelle-project/

    Previous experience of radio-tracking, particularly of bats, is preferred, but not essential as ‘on-the-job’ training can be provided. An ability to work outdoors and read maps is required though.

    Please let Matt know as soon as poss if you are able to help with this fascinating fieldwork and more info will be provided in a couple of weeks.
