Chiroptrivia 2015 –

“Life is a beautiful and strange creature that appears at a window, flies swiftly through the banquet and is gone.”  The Venerable Bede

and there can be few more strange and wonderful creatures than a bat. So this section is dedicated to the strange and wonderful things which make bat group members laugh, agree with or wonder at

We are lucky to have some very good photographers in the bat group. One of them Hedj Dollman is a professional photographer and his photo of this bat in care was used in the Wildlife Trust magazine

This has to be one of the weirder bats, hard To believe he is from the same genus as Mimon crenulatum
