Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th July, 21:00 until 22:30
Please join the Jersey Bat Group for the first Great Garden Bat Watch!
This new event combines the joy of (hopefully!) watching bats with citizen science based research that can help us better understand bats across Jersey.
The Great Garden Bat Watch
We are asking you to go into your garden, or to an open space near your house or really anywhere in the Island to look for bats
- When: Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th July (or both!)
- Where: Any outside space (garden, park, lane, beach)
- What time: From 21:00 until 22.30
You do not need a bat detector as we are not asking you to identify bat species, all you need to note down is:
- The time you saw the first bat
- The direction the bat flew from
- Details of the Recorder, Date and Location
We are working in conjunction with the Jersey Biodiversity Centre who have designed a bespoke data entry form for you to enter your sightings the link to the form can be found here:
Our Research Officer – Piers Sangan – has recorded a useful video to explain what to record and how to complete the online data entry form
We look forward to receiving news of your local bats!
For any further details about the bat watch or to submit your data by email then please email us Jersey Bat Group
