Abstract
During the period April 2001 through to September 2005 the BATS & The Millennium Link (BaTML) project carried out a survey programme to monitor the distribution and abundance of Myotis daubentonii along the canal corridors of central Scotland. This survey activity corresponded with a period of change (i.e. the first five years of the reopening of these waterways to canal traffic) within the locality. Our survey methods used heterodyne bat detectors in conjunction with a fourtrack recorder to survey bats as they travelled through preselected sections of canal.
