The latest annual survey from The British Waterways has shown a 9% rise in bat numbers when compared to last year. It seems bat numbers are increasing along Britain’s canals and rivers. The predicted cold winter could also be good news for bat numbers as it will allow them to hibernate properly. Bats tend to use canals and rivers as corridors to travel and feed before hibernating for the winter. We have certainly seen large numbers of bats in our garden this year, although we are not really near any water sources.
