Comment from a client:
"My bat detector microphone failed during a dawn survey and knew that I had a group of dusk surveys starting in two days time. I was not in a good place as I did not have a spare, but my equipment was less than a year old.
After my survey I contacted Martin by email and he called me back on the same day, a few hours later, after a quick nap. He told me he did not have a part in stock, but had already contacted the supplier on my behalf.
The next day I received a replacement part, free of charge and express delivered from Switzerland. I thought it was amazing, and could not believe it was resolved so quickly.
Due to Martin's exceptional service I was good to go with the surveys, and I really would like to thank Martin and Wildlife Countryside Services for making the dusk surveys happen."

Wildlife Acoustics' SM3BAT
with 4 year warranty! (only from us)

Introducing the SM3BAT from Wildlife Acoustics
Better, stronger and faster than the SM2BAT+, with longer battery life and an extruded aluminium case.
Easy card and battery insertion and removal, easier programming and much better microphones make this a bat detector to be reckoned with.
Possessing the versatility of the SM2 but in a much more robust and easy to use form, you can still have 2 microphones up to 100m from the main unit, so up to 200m apart, making this arguably the best value bat detector on the market today.
Now with an improved specification, allowing you to record 2 channels of 256kHz zero cross and 2 channels of full spectrum simultaneously!......Like owning two AnaBats and two D500x!
New FG Microphone element with a flatter frequency response giving much better results than from the SM2BAT+.
Mounting lugs on the case make it much easier to mount than the SM2BAT+.
Supplied with 4 32GB SanDisk SDHC cards, 4 alkaline batteries and one SMM-U1 FG microphone with 3m cable.

Please note, in the future features may be added only to the Pro offering.
This offers a solution to the UK market at a lower price, as the UK market is a bit different with many smaller ecological companies.

SM3 Acoustic Recorder, for birds, frogs, crickets, etc.
Wildlife Acoustics SM3 Acoustic Recorder Wildlife Acoustics SM3 Acoustic Recorder
with our Exclusive 4 Year Warranty!
Time is money and the SM3 was designed to reduce your cost of ownership. The SM3 has a new amplifier and energy management software that increases deployment time by 20% over the SM2+. How is this so? In sleep mode between scheduled recordings, the SM3 uses almost no power (around .05 mW), allowing it to remain idle for months at a time.
Using high-quality alkaline batteries, the SM3 can record up to 260 hours of acoustic data with superb detail. That means longer deployments and fewer trips into the field. (Note: the SM3 owner's manual has a detailed listing of battery life per battery type and recording format.)
