Chatter box Bat Conservation Trust volunteers from across the UK have spent over 42,000 evenings monitoring bat populations as part of the National Bat Monitoring Programme. The results of their study, published in Biological Conservation, reveal that ten species of bats show stable or increasing trends.

Dr Kate Barlow, lead author of the study, said: "We are delighted to be able to show that their [the volunteers] hard work and dedication allows us to produce a convincing and generally positive picture for the populations of some of our more widespread bat species. This is however only the start of recovery for some of these species and there is still a long way to go."

Avian flu confirmed in Washington

The US Department of Agriculture's Animal Plant Health Inspection Service has confirmed the presence of avian influenza in wild birds in Whatcom Country, Washington.

Two separate virus strains were identified: HPAI H5NZ in northern pintail ducks and HPAI H5N8 in captive Gyrfalcons that were fed-hunter-killed wild birds.

The US Department of Agriculture say that neither virus has been found anywhere in the US and no human cases with these viruses have been detected. There is no immediate public health concern with either of these avian flu viruses.
