Welcome to the Bernwood Forest Bechstein's Project Blog! Following the discovery of breeding Bechstein's in Buckinghamshire during a National Bat Conservation Trust survey, this subsequent project was conceived by Chris Damant, Jo Hodgkins and Toby Thorne to follow up and find out more. See below for updates on the blog and follow our Twitter feed @bechsteins.

All work is conducted under license from Natural England. All British Bats are protected by law.

The Bernwood Forest Bechstein's Project is a project of the North Bucks Bat Group.

Hi all. I've been working on a new update to the blog covering the surveys that we've done so far this season. That should be done soon, but in the mean time here are a couple of videos from the surveys.

This video shows a couple of the bats we caught last night.

This video shows some footage Chris took of Bechstein's last year.
