This month we have been carrying out numerous aerial inspections of trees for roosting bats in West Yorkshire and Cumbria, with some interesting results. We’ve also had chance to test out our new endoscope, the Ridgid Micro CA300 Inspection Camera.
The Natterer’s bat in the video below has probably been the highlight of the last week. This was found in a frost crack in a small beech tree, roosting approximately 2m off the ground. The video is a bit jerky, so we’ll make sure we get clearer pictures in the future! Other highlights have included a noctule bat, and several common pipistrelles, along with other wildlife we’ve encountered along the way, such as blue tit nests and red squirrel dreys.
