The big event of the bat calendar is the Bat Conservation Trust's annual conference. We had always made it an ambition of ours to attend so we were excited to be accepted to talk this year.
We gave an overview of our project, from our initial idea, through up and downs, to our first recordings from the Bat-Plane and Bat-Boat.
Our talk went down well and can be viewed online, over here. We also heard some other great talks including some innovative uses of technology. The future looks bright for bat work in the UK.
We got to show off our drones, old and new. some with a lot more duct tape on than others! We also had some great questions from the audience and great discussions with other attendees which we hope to build on in the next field season.
