Bats don't care about #Brexit! Tiny Nauthusius pipistrelle flew from England to Netherlands in 4 hours on 2nd May 🇳🇱🇬🇧 #migration #bats @Mammal_Society
A Nathusius' pipistrelle flew from Minsmere in England directly to Wijk aan Zee (Netherlands) in one night. This is the first detection of such a crossing through a telemetry study of the migration of Nathusius' pipistrelles. https://www.wur.nl/en/news-wur/Show/Nathusius-pipistrelle-crosses-the-North-Sea-in-one-night.htm
Only 4 bat-related PhD theses have been done in Finland with bats. However, several are about to be defended. Stay tunned! #EBRS2021
Also, Finland is home to (at least) 13 bat species 🙂
#windturbines are positive for #climate but can be negative for #bats and #birds. This situation is considered as a green-green dilemna but has concrete solutions like #curtailing.

We are looking to develop a network to monitor and predict changes in #bat distribution, and inform future conservation in Europe. Step 1: find out what is already being done. #climatechange http://www.climbats.eu @COSTprogramme
