The new bat survey guidelines have been released for download from the BCT website or a printed version can be purchased from the NHBS store.

The new guidelines are an update to the previous document which was released in 2007.

New chapters include:

Pre planning considerations
Equipment and techniques
Assessing survey reports
Long term surveys for larger infrastructure projects
Surveying for wind farms
Interpreting results
We are pleased that the guidelines are out in time for the start of the bat season, and the team are busily studying the document to make sure that our 2012 surveys are carried out to the new guidelines.
