About Us

Logo SerotineWe are affiliated to the Bat Conservation Trust (the national organisation for bat protection) and the Somerset Wildlife Trust.

Somerset has 16 of the 17 species of British Bats and we recently discovered Leisler’s maternity roost in Taunton.   Some species are more common than others and some are endangered. The Bat Group is actively engaged in varied activities to help preserve these fascinating creatures.

We run many events and surveys.  Several of our members run Bat Walks in the Summer. We give talks to local groups, install and check bat boxes, take part in many national bat monitoring and local Surveys and during the Winter hold workshops and courses in Bat Care, Analysing Bat Sound, and Bat Identification.
