Available Waterway Survey sites 2017

The sites listed below have been surveyed in the past but need revisiting in order to detect changes in bat activity. If you live near one of these sites and would like to carry out two surveys in July then please contact us at or on 020 7820 7166, quoting the site no. of the site you are interested in surveying. Sites that are crossed out have now been taken.

Look out for sites marked with an asterisk*. These sites are in our "baton-passing" scheme where the previous surveyor at the site has offered to accompany a new surveyor on their first survey to help them find their way along the transect route and provide tips on the survey method and species ID. Click here to view maps just showing the locations of these sites.
