PLANNING YOUR SURVEY
The random allocation of sites allows us to obtain more reliable results in order to formulate population trends.
To get a true picture of the population across the UK it is important not to deliberately choose sites where bats are known to be abundant.

Please note that the Bat Conservation Trust is unable to provide bat detectors.
You will also receive a map reference or map in your pack.
If you are assigned a REPEAT SITE that has been surveyed before by another volunteer, you will receive a map with a route already marked on it and information to help you find your way around that route.
