The bats didn't listen they made the nursery roost over a south facing dormer window with little space and it's all gone wrong.
4 babies dead in the gutter, cooked I should think. The adults were coming out in the day time to escape the heat but the babies are too young.
That's two years running. That plus 2 very cold winters and one wet one. No wonder there aren't many bats flying about now. We have had 200+.
Now nothing is eating the mozzies and they're on the increase
Awwwwww Nut, that's a shame, poor little things
Nut, how disappointing about the bats...
Will that be it for this year, or do bats raise a second batch?
I should think that will be it VS.
what's natures calendar bekkie?
Nut we have bats behind our shutters during the day, how they don't cook I don't know. it can get so hot on the south side of the house. Like you i have asked them please would they like to go somewhere cooler so that i can shut the shutters during the day against the sun but hey they don't listen, so i cook as well.
Right, I'll have a look at that bekkie. Thank you.
Floralies for years the bats went in under the barge boards on one of the gable ends of the house. From there they could access the whole roof space. It seemed a good choice, don't know why they moved. Better for us as well as it wasn't over windows and we all know what's up walls and windows under the entrance to a bats roost
