Night Walking

My new exercise regime means that I must venture out after dark over the next few months.  The other day I did a trial run with Louis just before his bedtime.  The main purposes of this little trip out was to see the bats which roost in the tree in the lane close to our home.


Our trip was a huge success. These amazing animals swooped around us, sometimes just inches from our heads. Luckily we escaped getting bat poo in our hair but perhaps bats have manners and don't toilet in flight like pesky gulls (answers on a postcard please!). Unfortunately though, despite using my camera phone in overdrive I didn't get a shot of a single, speedy bat but these sunset and night-time shots provide a measure of compensation.
