A very busy weekend started on Friday evening with some bat surveys a Rushmere Park on the Beds/Bucks border. A joint effort of the NBBG and the Beds Group. Thanks to Bob Cornes for organising.
A record 54 Brown Long-eared Bats were recorded from the roost. Species heard on detectors were Soprano Pips, Common Pips, Myotis sp., Noctules, Brown Long-eared, Daubenton's and most interesting passes by Barbastelles. Alas I can't add Barbastelle to my Bucks list as I'm not fully sure I heard one in Bucks. But will certainly return to this site as this species is rare in Bucks and offers a good chance to hear one.
I also found 3 Glow worms in the Beds section - which was nice.
