Bat Surveys

Susan Shand, the Assistant Factor at Haddo, is a qualified bat handler on the list of Aberdeenshire Council-approved bat surveyors. By law, any planning applications that have the potential to disturb a bat roost now require a survey to be carried out before they can be filed for approval. Bats feature on the European Protected Species (EPS) list, and hefty fines can be incurred if proper measures are not taken to avoid disturbing or destroying their roosts.

A survey will aim to identify which species are present and in what number, as well as the location of the roost, and will typically include a visual and aural examination of the site followed by a survey of evening emergence or dawn re-entry patterns.

For further information, please contact Susan Shand.
