Last night we caught our first bat in our new trap trap.
She was not best pleased to be caught and wriggled a ot – as this photo shows.
But we forgave her everything but she was a Leisler’s bat. This is the first time we have ever caught a Leisler’s in the county. We have thought that we have heard Leisler’s in the past, but they are very difficult to distinguish them from Noctule if you listen to the sonograms
We are over the moon – even if I have to write a new page for the bats in Bedfordshire Section of the website. ( Actually I don’t but it does need updating)
