At a national scale the UK has 18 species of bat, 17 of which are known to breed here. They roost in various locations throughout the year, often with other bats and hibernate over the winter. Research has shown that some species prefer hollow trees, others caves and some use both at different times of the year. Many species roost in buildings, sometimes in roof spaces but often in gaps in stonework or behind fascias, or under slates or tiles. They roost in both modern and old houses and are most noticeable during the summer active season when they are not hibernating. UK bat species are some of our most endangered forms of wildlife and population distributions have declined greatly over the past century due to roosting and foraging habitat destruction. Because bats are becoming increasingly rare they are now fully protected by UK law. They are also a European Protected Species (EPS).
