West Yorkshire Bat Group consists of many people, including several licensed bat workers, interested in finding out more about bats. The group undertakes surveys of both new and existing bat roosts, researching and recording the behaviour, distribution and their habitats in order to further our knowledge of these fascinating and elusive creatures.
