Bats can be seen in cities, woodland, parks, fields and gardens all over the UK. The Big Bat Map hotspots have been recommended by
Bat Conservation Trust staff and local bat groups as good places to see bats.
So head out to bat hotspots at sunrise or sunset and keep your eyes peeled! For pointers on where and when to look for bats and see our
Hints and Tips.
If you don't have any hotspots near you why not
view sightings of bats in the area and head in that direction.
Or you could make your garden our bat hotspot and find out about
bat friendly gardening!
