Ad-hoc Bat Records from Across Wales
Natural Resources Wales
This dataset combines the bat records Natural Resources Wales (NRW) holds as a top copy within their copy of Recorder 6. It includes Important Welsh Bat Roosts Database (BATSITES-WALES), bat roosts data from Pembrokeshire hibernacula and day / night roost records, Welsh Lesser Horseshoe Bat summer roost surveillance database, and some regional records from Pembrokeshire and south Wales (BATDATA-WALES). This dataset gives an indication of the abundance of each species at each location, and gives the annual summer surveillance records for selected nursery roost sites.
The purpose of this data capture was to record species distribution and details of bat roosts, to assist NRW in conservation work. In particular, to provide information when dealing with development proposals, to support the monitoring and notification of Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and to aid with the monitoring and reporting on the status and trends of protected bat species.
Validation still required
Data was generated from visits to roosts by staff and volunteers as well as enquiries received by former Nature Conservancy Council (NCC) or Countryside Council for Wales (CCW). Data is held and managed by Natural Resources Wales (NRW).
