We took cake and Bob did a session on IDing bats
Dave who hand reared 14 infant bats, all but one of which survived;(a remarkably high survival rate) did a session on caring for infants, deploying a brilliant visual aid The Peg Bat to demonstrate as a method to avoid getting milk up the bat’s nose – a danger with doing a dropper. The bat gets such a good grip on the paintbrush that the milk cannot go down the wrong tube
He apologised for not wearing gloves ,but BCT please note this was a peg not a bat!
* Sod’s law: We had a bat come into care the day before
