As part of the Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Project, a camera has recently been installed in one of our large greater horseshoe roosts. You can see some fantastic live footage on the website of the bats in the roost. The best time to watch it is just before sunset when the bats are flying around inside the roost in preparation to emerge for the night.
Live footage from within the roost can be watched by visiting the Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Project website.
Working across Devon, the project is looking to secure the future of this species in the county. Ensuring the habitats needed are present, that our bat knowledge is better and that the people of Devon know about the species and so are better able to look after it.
