NATIONAL BAT MONITORING PROGRAMME SURVEYS
Contributing to the National Bat Monitoring Programme (NBMP) is a big part of what we do. The NBMP gathers robust information about trends in bat populations; helping to inform the understanding of how wildlife is coping in our changing world.
Every winter we count hibernating bats in tunnels, viaducts, kilns and caves, centred on three locations in the county.
In summer we count bats out of their breeding roosts as well as carrying out twice yearly bat survey transects in Graves Park in Sheffield.
