ABSTRACT

Long distance recaptures of banded bats from Eastern European countries (Belarus, Ukraine, European part of Russia) has been lacking for decades. The last transboundary recapture was recorded in the end of the 1960s. We herewith report a new long-distance recapture of a noctule (Nyctalus noctula). The fresh carcass of a ringed adult female noctule was found in South-East Hungary on 22 May 2014. The bat was mist-netted and ringed on31 May 2011 on the territory of Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, in North Ukraine. The direct distant between two locations is 800 km.
