Small Myotis Project

The small myotis project is a nationwide project being run in collaboration with bat groups. This project aims to look at the distribution of the small myotis species within the UK and identify trends in habitat preferences.

Many thanks to all the bat groups and individuals taking part in the project as it couldn’t be done without you! Special thanks to the volunteers testing the system and inputting the historic data for us, and to Surrey Bat Group for agreeing to be test subjects and input their own 2019 data!

From 2020 we are moving over to digital recording of project data through a custom project within EpiCollect5, which is available on Android and iOS plus via a web portal. All registered participants will be receiving an email with how to register and a copy of the instructions for both the web portal and app. Copies of these instructions are also available to download below.

As records of small myotis are received through the app they are automatically mapped within EpiCollect5. Historic data is still being added at the moment, but a copy of the most recent maps are shown below.
