This page is dedicated to the 17 species of bat that can be found in the UK. Officially there are now only 16 species, and consequently there is some debate as to whether the Greater Mouse-eared bat should appear on this page as it was declared extinct in 1991. However, after a female was found in 2001, some hope has been restored, and so for the moment at least, we have left it on the list., We have created a page summarizing the frequency and sounds of each type to assist with identification in the field.

We are in the process of putting together a database of every species found worldwide, with the intention of adding more and more data over time, to make it a central information point for species recognition across the globe. The shear volume of species makes this a huge task, but come back in a few months time to see how we are progressing.
