AnaBat: Bat detector - mobile monitoring

A bat detector is mounted on or used from a moving vehicle. It can be essentially active or passive.


Mobile monitoring is ideal for:

- Large-scale spatial emphasis - finding where and which bats are found over large areas

- Can provide actual numbers of bats - little chance ofencountering the same individual twice

- Well suited to regular transects for temporal coverage

- Good for identifying hot spots of bat activity

- Ideal way to involve unskilled volunteers

- Best suited to surveying of aerial insectivores


Supplies required for mobile monitoring:

- AnaBat™ SD2 bat detector

Car mount

Extension cable
