Infra Red Camcorders as Bat Survey Tools.

Everything but the kitchen sink

One of the additions for 2012’s bat survey gear I’ll be carrying is a Sony HD camcorder and tripod. Having used nightvision for surveying for a couple of years now I realised that a camcorder and IR lighting rig was a better way forward after seeing Pat Waring’s set up both in use and the resulting films he’s captured.

I’ll post a research blog showing my set up and some example films as soon as it warms enough for me to get out and do some filming.
