Wind Turbine/Wind Farm Development Bat Survey Guidelines (Version 2.8)

These guidelines were prepared by Bat Conservation Ireland to provide advice to the wind energy industry, ecologists, local planning authorities and other competent authorities on the survey work required to understand and assess the use by bats of an area proposed for a wind energy development.

This is part of our Good Practice Guidance for Bats, produced by Becky Collins.
