The first bats were out tonight, we are hoping that they are madly feeding on the midges that have really taken hold of the village this week. They are hard to identify, in the dark and flying to and fro, but we suppose that they must be pipistrelles, which are a protected species. There is a fantastic amount of good information available from Bat Conservation Trust who have a great website here. http://www.bats.org.uk/ No pictures I am afraid - too dark!
