An opportunity to take part in some bat monitoring in the Rockingham Forest area to identify and quantify the species that are present and gather data for one of our target bat species, the Barbastelle Bat.
Attendees will be trained on how to use bat detecting equipment, plan a transect route, identify Barbastelle in the field and carry out a transect survey in the evening.
Once trained, all attendees will have all the necessary skills to monitor other sites throughout Rockingham Forest. No previous bat surveying skills needed, equipment will be provided and tuition is free.
