Interesting I am presently sat outside my house doing a Bat survey as I have done for the Bat Conservation Trust for a
almost 30 years. Since moving into this property we have shared it with Pipistrelle Bats my maximum count was 300 living in our roof space.This
last few years numbers have plummeted as have the insects. Normally I would be sitting out here with a fleece on gloves and a midge net over my head they were so bad, tonight 2 hour survey, it’s mild and only light airs, I am in a tee shirt, ok there are Midges but not in the numbers as in previous years when they made life so uncomfortable. The lack of bats coupled with the very dramatic drop in insect numbers is to me very noticeable and in our rural garden very worrying.
The point is that´s not the Point!
