Hethersett is a haven for different kinds of bats, the village's environmental action team has found.
Team chairwoman Dr Anne Edwards reported on the bat survey at the village's annual parish meeting at the village hall.
Dr Edwards said bat species recorded including the common pipistrelle, the rare barbastelle and serotine bats and the country's biggest bat, the noctule.
She said: 'Any nature reserve would be happy to record as many species. We are certainly high on the bat map of Norfolk.'
Dr Edwards also told the meeting the action team had helped 357 toads, 28 frogs and more than 50 newts across roads to spawning grounds so far in 2016.
