Grounded Bats

During our dusk bat surveys last week we found this grounded pipistrelle bat. He was very cold, but after warming him up he started making socialisation calls and flew off to join the other pipistrelles once they emerged. All bat species in the UK are protected by law and this bat was handled by a licensed bat ecologist.

If you find a grounded bat please call the Bat Conservation Trust helpline for advice  0345 1300 228  or see
