Event description

Description

Delivered by Jon Goodrick from the Wildscapes consultancy, this one day course is aimed at people entering or working in the ecology sector who want to get an introduction to bat surveying before the start of the survey season. The course covers:

- An introduction to the biology and ecology of bats

- An introduction to the identification of British bats

- An introduction to bat legislation

- How to plan and conduct ground based tree assessments, identifying potential for bat roosts

- An introduction to aerial survey techniques with a demonstration of tree climbing and use of endoscopes

- An introduction to nocturnal activity surveys

- An optional bat walk in a local park, to practice using bat detectors

The course is scheduled to finish at 21:30 but this is an estimated finish time. The optional bat walk is dependent on the weather; in the event of bad weather the walk will be replaced with a demonstration of bat detectors using acoustic lures.

The course costs £72.50 per person, with discounts for students, SRWT members and SRWT staff and volunteers. Individual bookings should be made using Eventbrite; corporate bookings (requiring a Purchase Order) can be taken by emailing info@wildscapes.co.uk.
