Bat detectors

Yes, you can record to mini-disc or increasingly mp3 recorder.

For a good selection of recording see the Warwickshire Bat Group pages:
http://www.jwaller.co.uk/batgroup/pipistrelle.asp

Heterodyne bat detectors are the basic detectors you are most likely to come into contact with and will still allow you to record signals for playback. A good heterodyne detector eg Magenta Bat4 will only cost about £60

The more advanced frequency-division and time-expansion detectors can produce sonograms to be analysed by computer.
