Monday’s survey saw the bats co-operating. More than 50 Daubentons passes of the lake, brown long eared bats a a box, another box had a probable Daubenton in it.
Regular readers of this blog know that we moan endlessly about bending down by the lake holding a torch to do the Daubenton’s count. ( Some of us are not as young as we were). All hail to Malcolm who made a device for resting the torch on so we didn’t have to kneel down. Such a simple ideas it just never occurred to us before!
