Hi there,

What can I say about the Anabat Express?

If you're looking for a zero-crossing recorder to leave out on site, this is the one to get unless you need unattended deployment times longer than 14 nights.

If you do need longer deployment times, perhaps the Wildlife Acoustics SM4BAT ZC would be a better choice; up to 50 nights deployment on one set of D-cell batteries plus a 4 year warranty, exclusively from me.

If you'd like an easy-to-deploy recorder that can record in both zero crossing and full spectrum, take a look at the new Anabat Swift.

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

Warm Regards,


Your Anabat Express comes with my 60 day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and my exclusive 3 year warranty for £840 including UK delivery and VAT
(non-UK delivery will be charged at cost after purchase and if you have an EU VAT number or are outside the EU, we can supply without VAT)

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."
