The kindness and understanding of batty-loving friends and bat finders has been overwhelming these past few weeks.

A couple of weeks ago, I received a message from a young, kind bat-loving friend offering to support and help me with my bats. The thought was so very much appreciated Katie.

I then received a lovely letter and generous donation from another dear batty-loving friend wishing to help our bats, and us. I cannot thank you enough Bridget for your kindness.

We also drove had to drive quite a distance to release little Snoozy, my dear Brown long-eared bat, earlier this week. After a cat attack, Snoozy had been presumed dead: wrapped in paper for five days and was nearly buried alive.

After watching Snoozy fly free in the finder’s garden, we chatted together, and as we were leaving, I was presented with flowers and an envelope. Inside the envelope was a homemade greetings card containing a super batty artwork, money, and a beautiful message. It was a lovely surprise and also lovely to know that the finder now loves bats!

I cannot thank you all enough for your kindness and support – really appreciated. xx!🦇
