Up at 4:30 this morning to watch a maternity roost of bats returning. Quite a sight as a whirling cloud of the winged creatures exchange news before finally flinging themselves, one by one, at their roost hole. Some stick like velcro and climb in. Others swoop away, to try again. Reckon there must be between 80 and 100 bats this morning. Last year, we counted over 250, but that included the juveniles.
If you ever have the chance to watch a bat roost in the morning, I can recommend it. Grab a cuppa and pull up a chair.
