    Beginners bat detector workshop

    7.30pm - 10.30pmCollingham Youth and Community Centre and RSPB Langford Lowfields

    An introduction to the heterodyne bat detector.

    This free course which is funded by our Heritage Lottery 'Echolocation Location' project and with help people new to bat detecting get the most from the basic bat detector.

    There are two parts to the evening.  Firstly we will spend some time inside learning how bats use sound to navigate and how we can interpret the sounds coming from the detector.

    After the indoor session we will venture out onto the nearly RSPB Langford Lowfields Nature Reserve to put the indoor session into practice.

    A detector will be provided if you need one but please bring a set of headphones with you (ipod/phone type are perfect) as it will help you to concentrate on just your detector rather than those close by. You will also hear far more bats with them!
