NBMP Training

Great session last night at Merseyside BioBank with members thinking about signing up for the National Bat Monitoring Programme!

Charlie kicked off with some bat calls and a chat about identifying species from their sonograms and how they differ depending on what the bat is doing and where they are. Ben followed this up with a brief presentation on the NBMP itself and the different types of surveys you can be involved in.

We closed with some great discussions about the surveys and what people could do next!

Ami Weir from the Biodiverse Society project was also present and outlined the work they are undertaking and how people can get involved through surveying bats and the NBMP.

See the link below for the excellent video on how to carry out the roost survey!

Remember you can sign up today!
