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

The speed of travel of Myotis daubentonii along canal corridors in Central Scotland

Neil E Middleton
During the period 2001 to 2006 BaTML surveyors monitored the abundance and distribution of Myotis daubentonii along the canal network that connects the east coast of Scotland with the west coast. During these activities the methods adopted allowed us to simultaneously look at other behaviour, including speed of travel, as bats travelled along this valuable wildlife corridor.
