John is a member of the Central Scotland Bat Group has kindly agreed to come and tell us about The Scottish Leisler’s Bat Project. It is an informal volunteer project which has been looking at Leisler’s bat in Scotland since 2010, and for most of these years a week or two in the summer has been devoted to investigations including radio-tracking in order to find out more about roosts and foraging, in the range of the species in the west and south of Scotland. During this time John Haddow and team have tracked bats in Dumfries and Galloway, Ayrshire and the Isle of Arran.

He joins inspirational 14 year old Dara McAnulty – Springwatch Unsprung Hero and Young Fermanagh Naturalist
