Manchester Airport bat barns monitoring (2012)

Cheshire Bat Group monitor the bat barns at Manchester Airport 2nd Runway annually, with roosts at each of the three barns being counted out three times during the survey season.  This is a great opportunity to see successful bat mitigation in action.

I went twice this year, to the Myotis barn to count whiskered bats and to the brown long-eared barn to count, you guessed it, brown long-eareds.

We always need more people so come and join in next year, bats (virtually) guaranteed !
