  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

4.1 General site character

N23100.00

Total Habitat Cover

Other Site Characteristics

The site consists of a disused stone cottage situated approximately 5 km north-west of Tulla in Co. Clare. The site is surrounded by agricultural land.

4.2 Quality and importance

This site supports an internationally important summer roost of Rhinolophus hipposideros. The cottage is in good condition and provides stable and undisturbed summer roosting conditions for the bats. It is one of a number of maternity roosts known from within a 5km radius and is located in an area with a large population of lesser horseshoe bats. Foraging areas and winter hibernation sites have not yet been established although it may be linked to a known hibernaculum situated approximately 3km away (Newgrove House).
