Bat Conservation Trust released upcoming bat detector workshops. Merseybank Green Group aspires to set up a wildlife working group to carry our regular bat detection events. We are really lucky to have bats present around Playing Fields, Chorlton Water Park as well as living on the actual estate!
Below is the Trust’s invitation:
We have some NBMP bat detector/survey workshops coming up which may be of interest to you. These are all being held online.
These three workshops are designed to help you get involved with NBMP surveys at different levels.
1. Discover Your Local Bats is a free workshop aimed at complete beginners and will show you how to get started with your first bat count.
2. NBMP Level 1 is for anyone who is quite new to using a heterodyne bat detector with a particular focus on taking part in the Waterway Survey. Only £3 for NBMP volunteers.
3. NBMP Level 2 (“Using Your Ears”) is a more in-depth heterodyne bat detector workshop which provides the skills for taking part in the Field Survey as well as the Waterway Survey. Only £3 for NBMP volunteers.
You may like to attend all three or simply attend one or two that are most appropriate to your current level and your goals for this year.
Please do pass this information on to anyone else you think might be interested.
