Whiskered

brantsWhiskered and Brants are small dark faced similar species which have been confused in the past. They live in buildings and tree holes in the summer, but in the winter time are recorded from underground sites. These two species have shown a very marked drop in records locally in the past decade.

 

 

There is still an enormous amount to learn about the habits and distribution of these understudied and misunderstood animals and everyone is encouraged to help with this task by reporting any found or seen, and to encourage the conservation of known roosting sites.
