One of 500 plus churches in Essex, many of which hold bats roosts. These roosts are often very small and seasonal. Evidence of bats may be limited to a few droppings. Recording bat echolocation can be used to determine which species are present. (image copyright: A Palmer)

This project has been financially supported by Essex Recorders partnership.
