Our Roots of Rockingham project team would like to invite you to learn how to identify British bat calls via an online Zoom event. Bookings are being organised via Eventbrite - please book your place here.

You will learn how to analyse data recorded on full spectrum bat detectors using call analysis software. The software provides images of the calls (sonograms), allowing you to look at the call shape and parameters of each bat pass in detail.
