Bat Care- a flurry of grounded bats

This hot weather has led to a flurry of grounded bats and abandoned pups. Soggy went back to a roost where she had found a pip pup to find that most of the roost hvef moved out, perhaps because it was too hot to stay and they fond somewhere cooler,

The team is at full stretch at the momentAs is always the case we have lost quite a few but nonetheless we have several that are hanging n in there

Asia, Angie, Dick and Geraldine, Jo and Kelly and Hedj all have their hands full

If you find a grounded bat call the BCT helpline – which is very busy at the moment- onĀ  0345 1399 228. If you are in Bedfordshire they will pass a message on to us. If that fails send us a message via the Bedfordshire Bat Group Facebook page
