Event Overview

Bat Sonogram Analysis Workshop Friday 10 May 2019 7pm – 10.30pm
A workshop led by Aidan Matthews looking at the technology available to help identify bats.

Listening to bats on detectors is a skill which needs lots of experience to be able to positively identify an individual to species level, especially as they only stay in range for a few moments.

Using a recording device with the bat detector means that the calls can be reviewed after the event and a greater level of accuracy obtained when identifying what bat species made the call. Variations in call type, between species, is easily seen and helps to explain what you hear when using a bat detector.

The training workshop will look at the range of species found in our area and have examples of the different software to view sonograms produced by recordings from a library file.

Technological advances in the last 5 years have also brought visual analysis to the field and this is extremely useful when dealing with multiple species and call types.

Ecological consultants are a key user of this technology for emergence surveys and long term monitoring, but it also has its place with the amateur conservationist who wants to further their experience of bat identification.

Cost: £25 Standard.
