Default TWO Bats!!!

I'm So Happy!!!

Just stepped out, for a shop keepers, and my bat was out there, doing his thing. Been around for donkeys years now. I've even handled him, having inadvertently flushed him. (Might still have photo's; If anyone could identify him, please? I'd be fascinated.)

But, yeah; He took a twist. Shot down behind the hedge. Then, 'reappeared' from behind the cottage in simply too small a time frame. Could it be ....?

So, I stood there a bit longer. Eyes locked onto him. And, sure enough! Pay dirt! I got Two Bats in my field of vision!

I know at least one lives under my fascia board. I was So careful, when replacing that a few years ago. Made damn sure to leave space for him to creep under.

'They' live in my stable too. Hence I won't render the walls, or I'd block their little nooks and crannies. No Way!

Any way. Yeah. So, Two bats. Certified. I just so hope they might be a breeding pair. I'd love to see more of them. Dear little things.

Gotta love bats!

Looks a bit like a Soprano Pipistrelle to me.

I nursed a young one that was found beside a dead adult in a sports centre a few years ago

Love it! Two people in agreement? Very likely Pipistrelle's then.

And, potentially Soprano's?! So, my bats could be " Well Connected "?
