Bat Bling

Some of our Irish bats have become the envy of their fellow chiropterans as they have been bedecked with silver rings and are rocking a new uber cool look! On the 2nd September 6 Nathusius' Pipistrelles (Pipistrellus nathusii) – 3 males and 3 females were caught using a harp trap and acoustic lure in Killeshandra, Co. Cavan. All 6 were fitted with rings inscribed with the codes IRL0016 to IRL0021.

We have 9 species of bats resident in Ireland. Up until the mid-90s there were only 7 species but then it was found that our Pipistrelle bat was actually 2 different species – and was split into Common Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pipistrellus) and Soprano Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pygmaeus).
