I'm not sure why but we've had an explosion of bats lately. Not literally, that would be fairly gruesome but in numbers flying around and sleeping the days away in the sunny exhibition space. Vitamin D deficiency like the rest of us? We've had to assist (no contact of course) several of them to high places ready for the night time, the ones already high up can shift for themselves when the darkness comes and the place is quiet. It's nice to see them back. I'll post pictures.
