Revised Bat Survey Guidelines Published

The 2nd Edition of Bat Surveys: Good Practice Guidelines was published last week, four years since the first edition was produced.  The revised guidelines include signficant amendments to survey methods and effort for dusk emergence/dawn re-entry survey of buildings, further survey effort and mitigation requirements for trees and methods/effort for bat activity surveys.

Additional chapters have been included on:

  • Writing and reviewing survey reports
  • Equipment and techniques
  • Bat activity surveys
  • Surveying major infrastructure projects
  • Surveying proposed onshore wind turbine developments
  • Interpreting and assessing survey results

We’ve produced a guidance note for our clients which explains the impact the revised guidelines will have on development projects and programme planning.

If you’d like to receive a copy of the guidance note please contact
