Daylight - Bat visit

To the surprise of visitors at the Opsrey Watch on Friday, a bat flew in through the front door and flew round and round the centre. We think it was a Daubentons bat due to it's size and our close proximity to the fishery ponds, where it is most likely to hunt.
It was very exciting to see this wonderful bat so close up, volunteers and visitors alike were thrilled.
Ospreys and chicks continue to thrive, the smallest chick is just a tiny head compared to the older siblings but with plenty of fish being brought in the littlest one should soon catch up.
