National Bat Monitoring Programme Annual Report 2019

The latest results of the National Bat Monitoring Programme (NBMP) with data up to the end of summer 2019 are now available. Download the report here.

Last year over 1,000 dedicated volunteer citizen scientists carried out NBMP surveys at over 2,000 sites across the UK. The survey results allow BCT to estimate population trends for 11 out of the 17 species of bat which breed in the UK. At present we are not able to produce population trends for some of the rarer and more habitat-specialist bat species such as barbastelle or Bechstein’s bat as they are difficult to monitor or rarely encountered.
