Our best find of the Jan hibernation survey.

It was very cold and windy Whipsnade- Downs on Sunday as you can see from the huddled figure 3rd fro the right. Tyrone works at ZSL and has been working closely with the bat group. He is  member and  bat carer and has revolutionised our relationship with the zoo.

The Fates decided he was due a reward and duly delivered hm one.

They found the first ever barbastelle hibernating at Whipsnade. This is the 5th species we have found in hibernation there. Looks like barbastelle is our bat of the year too.
