Online Day Course

To make this more accessible/inclusive, and in order to ensure Covid-security, this course will be held online via interractive video-link.


Modern bat detectors have the facility to record bat calls so that you can examine them on a computer later. Analysis of these 'sonograms' is critical to identifying bats to species level, especially if you are part of an ecological consultancy.

If you are new to this process of sound analysis and need to increase your knowledge then this one-day CPD course is for you.

We will take you through the following topics;

  • Identification of the main species of UK bats;

  • How to analyse a sequence of calls;

  • What parameters to measure;

  • What programs you can use; and

  • The different detectors available.

As a beginners course, you do not need any prior experience with sound analysis; the course is open to all.
