Surveying bats and crickets in the Little Ouse valley
Setting up the bat detector
LOHP’s static bat detector is telling us about the bats and crickets frequenting the night skies and bushes of the Little Ouse valley, thanks to a partnership with Dr Stuart Newson at the BTO who analyses the ultrasonic recording data for us as part of the Norfolk Bat Survey.
So far, the detector has recorded plenty of abundant species like Common and Soprano Pipistrelle, and also less common species like Natterer’s, Serotine, Barbastelle and Daubenton’s.
