Number four in the posts most frequently visited on this Blog is one I published way back on Sept 12th 2006 and it still attracts a steady number of visits. Its titled " Do Bats fly in the middle of the day?"
There have been 542 visits to the posting!
To follow up on my earlier post I think the answer to my question is that they may do when they are hungry or disturbed of course!
The Somerset Bat Group web site gives more information about their current programme including their AGM to be held at the RSPCA Centre at West Hatch on April 27th. Incidental one of our local wildlife group works there as a volunteer and was recently helping in the cleaning of sea birds after the recent sea contamination and getting rather pecked by the unhappy birds.
Here is a link to their web site: http://www.somersetbatgroup.org.uk/index.html
I'm sure they would be pleased to hear from you.
The web site shows a series of photos of bats taken by Paul Kennedy. The Group claims that 15 of the 16 UK native bats have been identified in Somerset and hopes one day to find the 16th.
