One Stop Nature’s bat detectors offer the perfect stepping stone into the world of understanding our nocturnal friends and their various calls.
The most common type of detector used today and the ones we have available are known as heterodyne detectors.
The human ear hears the difference between the frequency of the bat call and the frequency setting on the detector.
Heterodyne bat detectors are fantastic for beginners and keen hobbyists alike.
Their simple to use operation and proven reliability make them the go to choice for anyone keen on finding out more about the nocturnal world of bats.
By converting the ultrasonic bat call into a sound detectable by the human ear these detectors are excellent for species level identification.
The Bat detective field guide and CD is an additional way of learning about the different species of bat found in the UK and how to detect them from their calls and is highly recommended.
Ecologist Oliver Reville recommends the Magenta 4 or 5; “These simple to use but highly effective detectors give users everything they could want from an enthusiasts detector. It offers a great starting point into the world of bats with easy to use controls and fantastic sound reproduction”
