Abstract

During a TTFNC overnight trip to Huevos Island, an evening bat survey was conducted on 22 February, 2014. Three 12m nets and a harp trap were set up in the dry forest north of the only house on the island and were open from 1845 until 2110 h. The first net was set up diagonally (southwest - northeast) along the side of a gully and across a dry stream bed, ending on the other side. The second net was set up (north - south) on the east side of the gully on a flat patch of ground about 4m above the dry stream bed. The third net was set up (west - east) south of the second net on the same flat ground running alongside a fallen wall that was set just before the edge of the cliff at the back of the house. The harp trap was set up farther up the gully from the first net.
