    FULLY BOOKED

    This is a free course funded by our Echolocation Location Heritage Lottery funded project

    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 workshop will be led by Lisa Worledge, Head of Conservation Services at the Bat Conservation Trust .  There will also be infromation about how you could help with the National Bat Monitoring Programme and our Echolocation Location project.
