Hedgehogs

Important!

Have you seen a hedgehog this year? Please let us know so we can add it to this year's map.

This information may help us to protect hedgehogs in Exmouth. 

Bats 

These fascinating videos of a long eared bat were taken in the dark with infra-red cameras inside the attic of a house in Exmouth. Bats, usually one at a time, have been visiting throughout the winter feeding on small moths and flies overwintering in the attic. Impossible to tell if it's the same bat each time. In the first video, the bat uses its ears to check out the attic space.
