Bat species including the lesser horseshoe, greater horseshoe, serotine and pipistrelle bats that have all declined drastically in numbers in the last 30 years.
Conservationists are so concerned that the endangered animals are being driven out of their roosts they have issued a report advising home owners to always assume bats are present before undertaking even the most basic work. For example checking a smoke alarm could cause problems during the nesting season.
