Unfortunately the original (black coloured) Echo Meter Touch does not currently work with iOS 11. The issue affects modules with serial numbers EMT00495 and above. The only way to fix it is with a firmware update to the EMT1 module. That update cannot be performed by the user, so all affected modules in Europe will need to come back to Wildcare to be updated.Read More
Firmware is the software that runs on your detector. The firmware for the Anabat Swift is continually improved by Titley Scientific to add features and address performance issues. It is important to install new updates as soon as they become available to ensure your detector runs smoothly. This blog post takes you through the steps you need to follow.Read More
The fourth post in our bat conservation series covers a rare species that is named after their complex horseshoe-shaped nose, which is used for their unique echolocational calls. This week, we’re looking at the greater horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum), a rare
species of bat that is now starting to recover from the brink of extinction in the UK.
The third post in our bat conservation series focuses on a species known for its exceptional hearing capabilities. Brown long-eared bat (Plecotus auritus) ears are so fine-tuned they can register a ladybird walking along a leaf!
The second post in our blog series focuses on one of Britain’s rarest mammals: the barbastelle bat (Barbastella barbastellus).
Our new blog series covers a different bat each month, to help raise your general knowledge of the species and spot them in the wild. To start things off, we’ve looked at one of the most widespread of Britain’s bats, the common pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pipistrellus).
Ecologists please note:
This article is part of a series intended to help raise general knowledge of bats for those fascinated by wildlife.
