Meetings and Walks.

The Group holds one main meeting each year in the summer. The topic shall normally be on some aspect of bat studies/biology and will incorporate a business meeting to enable discussion on any aspect of Bat Group administration that members or Officers wish to raise. For details of the current year’s meeting click on Meeting Programme 2015. Details of past meetings can be found in our Reports section.

The Group also organizes a variety of bat walks for residents and visitors from April to September. For the current year’s programme click on Bat Walks Programme 2015


One of the Group’s important objectives is to accumulate reliable information about bats in the Islands and, where appropriate, to initiate further research for that purpose. Members participate in a variety of research programmes, details of which are recorded in annual reports. Members (and visitors!) are encouraged to keep records of bat sightings. Record forms for this purpose can be obtained by application to the secretary or at the Wildlife Trust’s Centre at Trenoweth, St Mary’s. For further details of the current year’s research plans, please click on Research 2015.
