Grey Long-Eared Bat
Latin name: Plecotus austriacus
The size of the grey long-eared bat varies from 45 mm to 70 mm in length, with a wingspan of 35 mm to 52 mm. This animal flies using echolocation. They use sound reflection to work out the location of objects in the dark. They like to live in woodland, heathland, grassland and dry underground places. Common at night as bats are nocturnal creatures and very active at dawn or dusk. These bats are becoming rarer. Join a bat walk or talk run by local organisations such as Jersey Biodiversity Centre.
