Roosting Pipistrelle bat

Sunday, May 24th 2009

Tom and Paul checked some of nest boxes around the reserve today. Sadly, the nest box occupation is no better than last year (which was a poor one). They found half a dozen boxes with Great Tits near to fledging and reported that the Blue Tits are about a week or so behind. They also found 1 Wren nest and 1 Coal Tit nest.

A surprise find is pictured here. A Pipistrelle bat roosting behind a Wasp nest!
