Just got over excited while gazing thru patio doors, a bat was flitting about, we haven't seen one for a few years. We're  so pleased.

    I love bats, love to watch them hunting. If you leave the lights on and the curtains open it attracts insects and the bats come in close to catch them

    Now the weather is getting a bit warmer hopefully we'll be seeing the bats from our local chalk mines flitting around our garden before heading off to the marshes to hoover up mosquitoes image

    Ours are awake. I haven't heard any activity in the roof yet though.

    Don't they make the most awful mess in the loft, I feel I need a shower when I come down from there. Very sweet, especially the thumbnail sized babies but.....

    As far as I could tell we've only ever had two. Didn't see them last year though, so not optimistic for this oneimage Do enjoy watching them making circuits over their favourite spots and making inroads into the accursed midges!
