SNH Bat Casework Recording log 2016
The dataset comprises bat roost location information extracted from roost record forms for 2016.
Records of bat casework are recorded on record forms. The great majority of casework is reactive, in response to enquiries received from householders, building managers, or other members of the public.
All records were collected by fully trained SNH staff and bat workers. There are some records for which only a general 'bat species' can be recorded, where there is evidence of a roost, but the species cannot be identified.
Bat workers record visits to bat roosts and other locations where bats have been reported on record forms. The core information from these forms is extracted and logged in an Excel spreadsheet. Records include species, count and location, together with further information including who visited the location, the method of identification and any issues associated with bats being present in the property. All records were collected by fully trained SNH staff and bat workers.
No citation information available.
The records in this dataset date from 2016. All records have a full date (YYYY-MM-DD). Some roosts may have been visited on more than one occasion during the year; in these cases, a date range of first and last visits is given.
Due to risk of disturbance at potential roosts/hibernacula, and to avoid identifying individual private dwellings, locations are restricted to 1 km2 resolution for public release. This sensitive information may be made available under licence to specific organisations and individuals that need to know to avoid harm to the environment. House names/numbers identifying private dwellings have been removed from the site names, where given.
