Bat Ecology and Survey Techniques
About the event
All Trust events and activities taking place from 1st September onwards will be carried out in line with current government guidelines and Health & Safety practices at that time. As this will change over the coming weeks and months, we ask that you check regularly on the website for updates as any of these events may be subject to change or cancellation.
Please help to protect our staff and other members by not attending any of these events if you or anyone in your household is feeling ill or have symptoms of Covid-19.
Learn about bats and how we survey them under the guidance of Education/Adult Learning Officer and 'everything bat' enthusiast Emma Rothwell. She will begin the evening in the classroom where she will discuss the 17 British species of bat including their life cycle, habitat and feeding patterns. She will then teach you how the Surrey Wildlife Trust's Ecology Services team conducts professional bat surveys using the latest technology to record their findings.
It will then be your turn to conduct a survey using this equipment. Bring a chair, torch, blanket and a flask for your hour in the woods monitoring the bat activity of Nower Wood.
Finally, you will reconvene in the classroom at the end of the evening to discuss your findings over a well deserved cuppa.
