What we look for?

Three things, principally:

Bats. No further explanation necessary (we hope!)

Evidence of bat activity = things like dropppings, dead bat carcasses and skeletons, prey remains, amongst other indicators

Habitat value. This is graded against criteria laid down by the Bat Conservation Trust in their guidence publication, Bat Surveys - Good Practice Guidelines (BCT 2012).
