Contains all of the accepted records held by the South Lancashire Bat Group (slbg.org.uk). The group were established in 1987 in partnership with the Bat Conservation Trust (BCT). They have a large membership of expeienced volunteers, many of which are licensed, and are extremeley active in the North West making this dataset very comprehensive.
Records are largely from the North West of England with a proportion of records being from Wales and other regions. The majority of records have a 100 metre or greater precision.
This dataset has been made available to GMEU under the terms of an exchange agreement with the SLBG. The dataset was recently updated to inform the Greater Manchester Biodiversity Action Plan, Greater Manchester Spatial Framework and planning decisions within the county.
