An illustrated talk at the Town Green Centre, Wymondham, will reveal the behaviours and needs of two prominent Norfolk bat species.
Jane Harris, who will be giving the talk, is involved with two voluntary bat projects in Norfolk and she will be detailing the findings of their respective studies.
The Norfolk Barbastelle Study Group is dedicated to protecting the rare Barbastelle species, which has a stronghold in Norfolk.
The bat has a short, flat, pug-like face and the study group aims to determine which environmental features are important to the species, before taking measures to preserve its habitat.
As part of her work with the Norwich Bat Group, Mrs Harris also studies the Nathusius Pipistrelle. Norfolk is a key area for this species, with the Broads an especially popular destination for this migratory bat.
