This publication aims to provide good practice guidelines in relation to designing and undertaking bat surveys; analysing the data collected during those surveys; and writing survey reports. The guidelines relate to professional bat surveys carried out to assess how proposed activities may impact bats. The guidelines aim to raise standards and increase the consistency of this type of work and ultimately lead to a greater understanding of bats and improvements in their protection and conservation.
