Selecting Stopping Spots
There should ideally be 4 per 1km stretch placed about 200m apart.
Try to keep each spot 150m apart as a minimum. This is necessary to make sure that each spot is independent and you are not surveying the same bats at adjacent spots.
Describe the spot in relation to a feature or landmark to enable you to recognise it.
Watch the video clip for an example.
Use permanent/long-term features as landmarks wherever possible. A permanent feature would be something like a mature tree, a gate, opposite a lamp-post or a building.
