All bats in the UK use high frequency sound (echolocation) to
orientate themselves and find food in the dark.

The results of vegetation surveys at two BaTML bat survey sites on the canal system in central Scotland

Kirsty Morrison and Neil E Middleton
During 2002 vegetation surveys were carried out at two sites on the canal corridor that transects the Central Belt of Scotland. These sites were Fawnspark on the Union Canal and Auchinstarry Basin on the Forth & Clyde Canal. The sites in question were chosen because they already featured for bat monitoring purposes within the BATS & The Millennium Link (BaTML) project and, in addition to this, they had also been selected for preliminary aquatic invertebrate surveys scheduled for the same year.
