Common Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pipistrellus)
The Common Pipistrelle Pipistrellus pipistrellus is a small bat whose very large range extends across most of Europe, North Africa, southwestern Asia, and possibly into Korea. It is one of the most common bat species in the British Isles.
It is 3.5-4.5 cm long with a wingspan of 19-25 cm. Its brown fur is variable in tone. It is common in woodland and farmland but is also found in towns, where it roosts in lofts and buildings.
In 1999 the Common Pipistrelle was split into two species on the basis of different-frequency echo-location calls. The Common Pipistrelle uses a call of 45 kHz, while the Soprano Pipistrelle echo-locates at 55 kHz. Since the two species were distinguished, a number of other differences, in appearance, habitat and food, have also been discovered.
The frequencies used by this bat species for echolocation lie between 45-76 kHz, have most energy at 47 kHz and have an average duration of 5.6 ms.
Life span The maximum recorded age is 16 years.
Statistics Body length: 3.5-4.5cm, Wingspan: 19-25cm, Weight: 3-8 g.
Physical description Pipistrelles are the smallest European bats. They have dark red/brown fur on their backs and yellow/brown undersides. The ears, nose and wing membranes are black/brown.
Habitat They occupy a variety of habitats, including open woodland, parks, marshes, farmland and urban areas.
Diet Pipistrelles emerge from their roosts to feed relatively early - sometimes before sunset. They hunt small moths, gnats and other small insects, often returning to their roost after a couple of hours, although they may emerge for another feed during the night. A single pipistrelle may consume up to 3,000 insects in one night.
Behaviour In the summer they tend to roost in buildings, bat boxes and trees. In the winter they also use trees and buildings, as well as large churches and cellars. They hibernate from mid-November to the beginning of April. They are rapid, agile fliers, flying about 5-10m above the ground.
Reproduction Males defend their own territories from other males during the mating season (August to September). Females visit these mating roosts, and one male can have a harem of up to 10 females.
The young are born in June/July, and although they usually only produce one infant in the UK, in central Europe they commonly have twins. Mothers recognise their young using smell and hearing. The young are able to fly after 3-4 weeks, and leave the roosts in August/September.
Conservation status Pipistrelles are not threatened and are the commonest bat in these regions , but numbers have decreased over the past decade. They are not listed by the IUCN list of threatened species. ***
