Hi there,

I'm Martin from Wildlife Services and I've created this web site to help you to choose from the expanding range of high-end bat detector/recorders now available. These bat detectors are for serious bat workers, ecologists and consultants, but if you just want a cheaper bat detector, click here.

Even for those who have a pretty good grasp of what each bat detector can do, it's still often difficult to decide which is the best one for each person.

The best detector for you depends on how you're going to use it and what results you want from it, so scroll down the page and take a look at what's currently on offer and I'll try to guide you to the best option for you.

You'll get a free bat calls book worth £35: either "British Bat Calls" by Jon Russ, "Social Calls of the Bats of Britain and Ireland" by Neil Middleton et al, "Bats of Britain & Europe" by Christian Dietz & Andreas Kiefer, "Is That a Bat?" by Neil Middleton or a voucher worth £35; with the Anabat Swift & Walkabout; Elekon Batloggers A+, M, M2 & C; Pettersson D240X, D500X & D1000X; Wildlife Acoustics SM4BAT FS.

I want you to be 100% happy with your purchase so I'll help you in any way I can.

Feel free to call me on 0333 9000 927 (+44 333 9000 927 from outside the UK) or email me.

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."
