Bechstein's Bat Survey Project
Bat capture records collected using a harp trap and acoustic lure. This study aims to provide baseline data of the Bechstein's bat at a 10km resolution. The methodology, although targeted at Bechstein's bats also allows the collection of other bat species data at the same level.
Southern England and South Wales at a 10km resolution
The purpose of the survey is to produce baseline distribution data for the Bechstein's bats. Records of other species will also be collected during the survey.
Representatives from each group taking part in the project attended a 4 day intensive training course to ensure their protocol and identification skills are satisfactory. All data is collected using the same methodology under the project licence.
A 25ha+ woodland was surveyed in each 10km2, using a harp trap and an Autobat (acoustic lure). Surveys lasted 1.5 hours at two sites within a woodland. Woodlands were selected for their potential association with Bechstein's bats, according to a habitat model.
