Desk studies

Before we visit a site we undertaken a desk review of bat records and consult a number of sources for existing information on local bat roosts. Sources usually include local planning authorities (i.e. biodiversity officer), National Biological Records Centre, Bat Conservation Ireland and/or Bat Conservation Trust, local bat group and the National Parks and Wildlife Service or Northern Ireland Environment Agency.
