The Anabat Walkabout has my 60 day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee & extra year's warranty

Hi there,

What can I say about the Anabat Walkabout?

If you're looking for a hand-held recorder with real-time sonogram display, this is the one to get unless you'd rather have a more pocketable unit to attach to your iPhone or iPad (EM Touch) or to attach via cable to your Android phone (Baton XD).

For a hand-held unit with pretty much everything you could want (except auto-ID), the Walkabout is hard to beat. If you'd like auto-ID, then maybe the Echo Meter Touch would be a better option.

You'll get a free bat calls book or voucher 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 Kiefer; with the Anabat Walkabout.

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

Warm Regards,


Your Anabat Walkabout comes with my 60 day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and my exclusive 2 year warranty for £1600 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)

The full colour five inch LCD touchscreen displays both full spectrum and zero crossing calls in real time, enabling you to monitor and review your sonograms in the field.

The detector uses the FG Knowles microphone which is known for its robustness & sensitivity. This omnidirectional microphone can be easily converted to directional using the included unobtrusive cone attachment. Saving your recordings is also a breeze with a built-in file management system for easy storage and play back, as well as metadata linking for adding all your species labels, voice recordings, maps and more. A built-in GPS and mapping system allows you to tag your calls and log your path as you go. Maps can also be saved for offline viewing. Included accessories: Wall Charger, USB Cable, 16GB SD Card, earphones, hand strap, lanyard, directional cone attachment and microfiber cloth.

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."
