Rare bat winters in Dutch Zeeland

This is a Geoffroy’s bat video from Belgium.

Translated from Dutch Vroege Vogels radio:

Friday, January 13, 2017

A Geoffroy’s bat was found during the annual count of bats in the World War II bunker in Burgh-Haamstede in Zeeland province. It is the first time that this very rare species has been observed in Zeeland. …

Geoffroy’s bats in the Netherlands live almost exclusively in South Limburg limestone quarries. The census also reported several hundred wintering Daubenton’s bats, as well as some 30 Natterer’s bats, some 20 brown long-eared bats and two whiskered bats.
