How Your Data Contribute to Science & Conservation: Improving Our Understanding of Biases in Roost Counts

BCT has a new paper out! Using National Bat Monitoring Programme data researchers showed that, to produce unbiased roost count trends, it is important to continue monitoring seemingly abandoned roosts, particularly for species which switch roosts frequently. Please read the full paper here. Thank you to all of you who take part in the NBMP Roost Count. Please do continue to monitor your roosts even if the bats are not present for a few years.
