Workshop request form


















This introductory bat detector workshop involves an evening classroom session followed by a practical field session starting around dusk. Bat sounds are broken down into four elements in order to train people's sonic memory and aid species identification using a heterodyne bat detector in the field. The focus is on pipistrelles, noctule, serotine and Daubenton's bat as these are the species monitored in the NBMP Field Survey and Waterway Survey.


This workshop focuses on the survey techniques and species ID skills needed to take part in the NBMP Field Survey which involves monitoring noctule, serotine, common pipistrelle and soprano pipistrelle with the aid of a heterodyne bat detector. Other species likely to be encountered are also briefly covered. An evening classroom session is followed by a practical field session starting around dusk.
