I just had to show you some photos that Caleb took last night.  He headed up to bed at “the manor” and found the resident bat was up and about.  So grabbing his new digital camera (that he was rather surprised to win after doing a survey at TAFE last year) he managed to get a couple of nice close shots of “Batty” as they affectionately call him.  They usually don’t see him much but they hear him sometimes swooping around in the dead of the night.

From the photos we have been able to identify him as a Lesser Long-eared Bat.  He is all of about 5cm long.  The boys figure that having a bat around is probably better than using fly spray so they are quite happy to have him there.
