Brown Long-eared bats and all bat species in the UK are insectivores. Each bat species will have different preferences, the Brown Long-eared bat's diet, for instance, is mainly comprised of moths, beetles, flies, earwigs and spiders. Small prey is eaten in ﬂight, but larger insects are taken to a 'perch'. Regularly used perches, which are frequently inside porches or barns, can be recognised by the accumulations of discarded insect remains, particularly wings of moths such as yellow underwings.
