Brown Long-eared bat (Plecotus auritus) is found throughout to the UK including Ireland but not on Orkney or Shetland. They will catch insects in free flight but also they “glean” insects. This involves flying slowly amongst foliage and picking insects off leaves and bark. However, their habit of flying close to the ground, or even landing to tackle prey, makes long-eared bats vulnerable to attack by predators especially domestic cats.

I illustrated, designed and developed this piece of information for the Mammal Next Door issue 5. The main illustration was one of the 40 works selected by Il·lustraciència 2017 jury.
