Bat Group Talk - Advances in acoustic technology for monitoring urban wildlife by Alison Fairbrass - Kenilworth Senior Citizens' Club

Acoustic technology which combines audio recorders with algorithms to automatically detect and identify biodiversity sounds in acoustic data is increasingly used to produce biodiversity data on large scales. Alison will present recent advances in the application of acoustic biodiversity monitoring to cities and discuss three projects: 
CityNet, a machine learning system for producing long-term trends of biotic and anthropogenic acoustic activity in cities. 
The world’s first automated system for monitoring urban bat populations at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The British Bat Survey which uses acoustic technology to make biodiversity monitoring more accessible and encourage monitoring in under surveyed areas e.g. urban habitats.

About Alison Fairbrass: 
Alison is a Research Associate at University College London. In recent years she has worked on interdisciplinary research projects developing new tools and monitoring projects for wildlife at local (Nature-Smart Cities) and national scales (British Bat Survey project). Previously she was an Engineering Doctoral student developing tools to monitor wildlife in cities.

Bat Group Talk - The good the bad and the ugly - 35 years of horseshoe conservation by Colin Morris - Kenilworth Senior Citizens' Club

Colin has been working with greater horseshoe bats since the mid-1980s, and to a lesser extent lesser horseshoes, since the early 1990s. From adapting and improving existing sites, to building new roosts from scratch Colin has built up a wealth of knowledge that he freely shares with others. Hear about the trials and tribulations, the success and the failures of just some of the sites he’s been involved with. 

About Colin Morris: 
Initially as a roof tiler, working in the west-country and in mainly rural locations, he discovered many of the buildings he was working on had bats in. In the early 1980s he joined the Dorset Bat Group and trained for his first bat licence. Towards the end of 1991 Colin joined the VWT. In 2014 he was awarded the Pete Guest Award for his contribution to bat conservation in the UK
