At the end of January 2016, a revision of the Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) Bat Survey Guidelines was issued.

Following previous versions in 2007 and 2012, this is the third edition of this guidance, which aims to provide a good practice framework for designing and undertaking professional bat surveys, analysing the data collected and writing survey reports.

Authored by Baker Consultants Senior Ecologist, Matt Cook, this article provides a chapter-by-chapter guide to the key messages from the 2016 edition and gives readers an overview of the main changes.
