This weekend is a comprehensive introduction to bat identification, natural history and conservation, combining daytime talks and workshop sessions with evening activities to watch for bats.
The course will cover the identification of British species in the hand and an introduction to the identification of bats in flight with the use of ultrasonic detection. Depending upon the needs of the group, more detailed study of ultrasonics will be possible.
The course is designed for anyone with a general or professional interest in bats and is also appropriate for anyone working towards a Natural England batworkers' licence.
The content is also appropriate for anyone wishing to contribute to their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
Please note that the nocturnal habits of bats mean that the evening sessions on this course are quite extended!
Also it may be possible for participants to handle rescued live bats if you wish, but ONLY if you can produce a valid certificate of vaccination against rabies (lyssavirus).
Brian and Patty Briggs have extensive experience in bat conservation, training of bat workers and the use of bat detectors.
