New Studio

It’s been a long while since I posted anything arty ~ so thought I'd do a quick catch up; explain why, and say Hi. Life for everyone has been turned upside-down and inside-out and I hope you are all well and hanging-on in there during these uncertain times. Back in...

Bisto

A knock on the door on a Saturday night. Apparently, early that a.m an estate worker, with an interest in bats, had been called re: a bat that had been found tucked behind a tin of gravy powder in the local golf club kitchen.  Presumably the bat had inadvertently...

Whiskered Bat

A call from the vet re: a bat found during early evening, in the middle of the road on a housing estate in Blandford Forum.  Thankfully a kind soul had collected and delivered the bat to the local surgery. Having just returned home after moving more furniture from the...

Waiting for Mum

Waiting for Mum

A quick catch-up to say that for the last two nights we have visited the house where our rescued baby bat was found.  On both evenings our pup sat patiently on her heat-mat waiting for  mum to come and collect her.  On both occasions, a Pipistrelle bat flew-in close...

Bat No. 3.

Another call today re: a bat rescue.  A Pipistrelle pup was found crawling across a kitchen floor.  It appears she'd fallen through a tiny gap in the ceiling close to the boiler.  The lady of the house did all the right things: placed a folded soft cloth in a shoe...
