Common Pipistrelle Bat

  • Print


The common pipistrelle bat is almost ubiquitous in Glossop. They occur almost everywhere we have surveyed and at every water body and linearfeature (treelines and railway lines) that we have investigated. Common
pipistrelle bats appeared to be the most common species of bat at all sites we visited, and was the only species that was present at all sites. A substantial number of roosts were located in houses, barns and mills, and a number of places where early emergence was noted are considered highly likely to contain Pipistrellus roosts. It seems likely that P. pipistrellus bats occur everywhere in Glossop, with activity concentrated around trees and water bodies.
