NEWSFLASH 15/02/2017: We are currently working on updating our sign-up map. Please hold off reserving a square for the time being whilst we do this.


Signing up involves (1) selecting a 1-km square or squares that you wish to survey – the sign up map will be updated to show that this square/s have been taken to avoid duplication of effort, and (2) booking a detector to use  – after selecting a 1-km square, you will be given a web link where you will be able to reserve a detector to use. We recommend that you reserve your detector as soon as you have reserved a square to avoid disappointment, as there is limited availability.

When selecting a new 1-km square to survey, please consider selecting a BLUE PRIORITY square to survey in preference to other 1-km squares. If you are not able to take on a priority square, please select any other available square. Priority squares have been selected according to a stratified random survey design, which if surveyed are most likely to  provide representative habitat coverage of Norfolk.

The survey season runs from mid-April until the end of September. If you wish to take part, please click on below map. You will then be able to zoom in to find and reserve a 1-km square that you would like to survey by double-clicking on it. If you have any problems using the map, please contact us directly at norfolkbatsurvey@gmail.comNorfolk_sign_up
