Roostwatch JE - survey form

Welcome to Roostwatch JE

By joining Roostwatch JE, you will be able to submit records to the Jersey Biodiversity Centre.  This can be done without logging in to the website, but if you are interested in wildlife you might like to consider registering an account with the Jersey Biodiversity Centre which would have advantages including easier recording options and the ability to access your records in the future. We hope you will visit us again making additional biological records

If you would like to create a personal account before submitting your record, please follow this link:

Have you seen bats entering a property, building or tree? If you have, please use the following form to record the roost, and any bats you have seen.

What you need to do

  • Check the building, property or tree between June and September.
  • Visually search noting any signs of bats(e.g., droppings) then at sunset (or sunrise) spend one hour observing to see if any bats leave or enter the structure.
  • Take photos of any signs of bats (e.g., droppings) and the areas you have seen bats enter or exit even if the bats are not in the picture.
  • Fill in the form below.

Remember that Jersey’s bats and other wildlife are protected by law, and should not be harmed, taken or possessed, nor should their breeding or resting sites be disturbed.

For more information and examples of what to look for please see the Get Involved / Roostwatch JE page.


Please provide your email address so that we can contact you if necessary about your submission.


Please give a location name e.g., a house/building name, postcode or street name.


Or simply click on your roost location on the map.


If droppings were seen, were they seen inside (e.g., barn, attic space) or outside (e.g. windowsills, on ground under facia etc)?

If bats have been seen

Please provide any further information, e.g. species of bat if known, if a bat detector was used, if the JSPCA, Jersey Bat group or the vets were contacted about a grounded bat etc.
