The bat season begins

batzzzzzzz

It is still a bit early in the year for bats to be about, but it would seem that not all bats know this. We had a call yesterday to a bat found in a house. Gwen collected him on the way home from work and the bat is going to one of the at care team today.

If you come across a grounded bat, ring the Bat Conservation helpline

9am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays for general queries and emergencies. Until 10:30pm including weekends and bank holidays between May and September for emergencies only.

They will contact a bat carer for that county
