Studies on the Two New Zealand Bats

Influence of Weather Conditions on Activity

Influence of Weather Conditions on Activity

Bats are generally reported on fine warm nights. Miss Lewis (personal communication) states that no bats are seen at Puketitiri on misty damp evenings and suggests that on cloudy evenings the bats appear earlier than usual. A record of bats flying high in drizzle, and a record of an injured Chalinolobus found on the floor of a shed after a rough night, are the only reports of activity in adverse conditions.
