Comment from a client:
"My bat detector microphone failed during a dawn survey and knew that I had a group of dusk surveys starting in two days time. I was not in a good place as I did not have a spare, but my equipment was less than a year old.
After my survey I contacted Martin by email and he called me back on the same day, a few hours later, after a quick nap. He told me he did not have a part in stock, but had already contacted the supplier on my behalf.
The next day I received a replacement part, free of charge and express delivered from Switzerland. I thought it was amazing, and could not believe it was resolved so quickly.
Due to Martin's exceptional service I was good to go with the surveys, and I really would like to thank Martin and Wildlife Countryside Services for making the dusk surveys happen."

Ciel CDP102 bat detector

Ciel CDP102 Review
Ciel CDP102 Bat Detector - With our Exclusive 3 Year Warranty!
The CDP 102 R3 has been specifically designed for long-term surveys. It features brilliant HD-Sound, external microphones and the stereo/dual option. It has a 2x8 digit LCD display and volume control. With the extended frequency range from 15 to 130 kHz you are able to record all bat sounds in clear audio, via any suitable device (not included). The external microphones are in an aluminium-housing with 8 inch cables allowing them to be placed where they are needed and are not depending on how the detector is installed. The detector can be switched from standard stereo mode for recording of flight direction to dual mode, where left and right channel can be set to different HD-bands. As a result, you are able to observe two different frequencies at the same time. In dual-mode both frequencies will be shown on the display, and for long-term surveys the display can be switched off to conserve battery life. Headphone and line out sockets for connection to recording devices are integrated. The detector has to be supplied by an external 9-12Volt DC source. It can be clipped externally to a standard 9v battery, or the lead can be used to connect to a custom power supply, like for example a 12v lead-gel rechargeable battery. The package includes: Detector, 2 microphones, Power-cables 2,1mm plug to 9V clip, 2,1mm plug for building own power supply.

British Bat Calls British Bat Calls
Knowledge of bat echolocation, calls and identification using bat detectors and programs such as BatSound has grown significantly in the last decade. In this practical guide Jon Russ and contributors (Kate Barlow, Philip Briggs & Sandie Sowler) present the latest data in a clear and concise manner.
The book covers topics such as the properties of sound; how bats use sound; bat detection methods; recording devices; analysis software; recording techniques and call analysis. For each species found in the British Isles, information is given on distribution; emergence times; flight and foraging behaviour; habitat; and echolocation including parameters for common measurements. Calls are described in the context of the different technologies used (heterodyne, frequency division and time expansion). Various spectrograms are displayed for each species using examples from both BatSound and AnaLook. An echolocation key is included with the book.

Social Calls of the Bats of Britain and Ireland Social Calls of the Bats of Britain and Ireland
Bats are fascinating mammals about which we still have much to learn. As well as using ultrasonic echolocation calls for orientation and while foraging, they also have a complex array of vocalisations for communication. These are known as social calls and are an essential component of their colonial lifestyle.
This book brings together the current state of knowledge of social calls relating to the bat species occurring within Britain and Ireland, with some additional examples from species represented elsewhere in Europe. It includes access to a downloadable library of calls to be used in conjunction with the book.
