What can I say about the Anabat Swift?

If you're looking for a passive recorder that's easy to deploy, records in both full spectrum and zero crossing and has a built-in GPS, this is the one to get. It also has exceptional deployment times, to rival the Wildlife Acoustics SM4BAT.

For a passive recorder with pretty much everything you could want, the Swift is hard to beat.

With the Swift you'll also get a free bat calls book worth £30: either British Bat Calls by Jon Russ, Social Calls of the Bats of Britain and Ireland by Neil Middleton et al or Bats of Britain & Europe by Christian Dietz & Andreas Kieferl; or a £30 voucher.

I want you to be 100% happy with your purchase so call me on 0333 9000 927 for advice, or drop me an email.

Warm Regards,

Comment from a client:

"My bat detector microphone failed during a dawn survey and knew that I had a group of dusk surveys starting in two days time. I was not in a good place as I did not have a spare, but my equipment was less than a year old.

After my survey I contacted Martin by email and he called me back on the same day, a few hours later, after a quick nap. He told me he did not have a part in stock, but had already contacted the supplier on my behalf.

The next day I received a replacement part, free of charge and express delivered from Switzerland. I thought it was amazing, and could not believe it was resolved so quickly.

Due to Martin's exceptional service I was good to go with the surveys, and I really would like to thank Martin and Wildlife & Countryside Services for making the dusk surveys happen."
