To provide quantitative data that can be used to assess changes in bat populations in the long term.
For randomly generated 30 km2 squares, driving a 58 mile fixed survey route, consisting of 20 monitoring transects of 1 mile length, spaced at 2 miles apart. All bat echolocation calls are recorded onto minidiscs and species identified post-survey by sonographic analysis.
30km2 squares spread randomly across the island of Ireland
2004 & 2005
All data generated by sonographic analysis and checked by Niamh Roche, project manager.
Results of the survey are written up in an annual end of year report available from Bat Conservation Ireland.
