First ever bat records for SK4328


On 31st August 2018 while undertaking field work for the National Nathusius’ Pipistrelle Project, Tom Bennett obtained the first ever records for a new 1 km square near Aston on Trent. Only 10% of this square actually sits in Derbyshire, the rest being on the opposite bank of the River Trent in Leicestershire. Tom caught a common pipistrelle, a Daubenton’s bat and 6 soprano pipistrelles in a harp trap squeezed into this corner of the County.
