This work will bring direct and indirect benefits for locally important species such as great-crested newt, water vole, brown long-eared bat
, noctule bat, soprano pipistrelle bat, otter and a wide range of aquatic invertebrate species, delivering multiple benefits to both people and wildlife in the surrounding area.
In particular, it captured a showdown between a long-eared bat

Nearly 6 million of our key pollinators have died in the past decade, including more than 90 percent of the populations of some species like the northern long-eared bat
We show how the air behind the body of a long-eared bat
accelerates downwards, which means that the body and ears provide lift.
