I’m back in work again this week, as we have a week of resit exams for the first years. The first exam that I was involved in today had bats flying round the room half-way through. I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come this week. We may have a plague of locusts by Friday.
We very carefully captured the bats. One was very tired, the other very maternal (mother, youth pair?) After reviewing the excellent information on the Bat Conservation Trust’s website I decided to keep them safe during today in a cardboard box, and to come back this evening at dusk to release them. I hope this works. The “tired” bat seemed to have recouped some of its energy by the time I took this snap.
