Greater horseshoe bats in HD thermal infrared
Vincent Wildlife Trust is extremely grateful to Dr Ian Baker, of Leonardo UK Ltd, for his generosity in sharing his video of footage filmed for the BBC programme Inside the Bat Cave. This was filmed using thermal imaging cameras over a few weeks in the summer of 2019 and gives a unique view of greater horseshoe bats at one of VWT’s largest maternity roosts in Dorset. The video also includes footage filmed by Dr Liat Wicks.
Inside the Bat Cave was first shown on BBC2 in October 2020 and is available on iPlayer until September 2021.
You can also help the recovery of this species continue across the country through our Sussex Bat Appeal.
Both species of native horseshoe bats are now showing signs of recovery in Britain after catastrophic declines during the 20th century. Find out more in this expert guide by @vincentwildlife:
