An excellent guide to identifying the calls of British bats. It's an ideal reference for the beginner, and highly recommended if you've just purchased your first detector, or if you're looking to improve your skills in identifying the sounds made by British bats.
In addition to the 48 page book there's a 48 track CD which features the echolocation calls of 13 species as heard through a bat detector.
Noctule, Pipistrelle, Serotine, Leisler's, Long-eared bats, Whiskered, Brandt's, Daubenton's, Natterer's, Barbastelle, Bechstein's, Greater horseshoe and Lesser horseshoe.

I recommend the bat book and CD. Useful combination of the science behind detectors but with some common sense advice for using one. Good to read before you buy a bat detector as well as afterwards!
