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 illustrate a range of different bat sounds. The training will enable you to take part in the NBMP (National Bat Monitoring Programme) Field Survey and Waterway Survey and includes an overview of NBMP surveys. *Attendees can leave early if they need to. The workshop will be led by Natalie Todman.
