URC Somerton’s Brown Long-eared Bat

The talk may have been about reptiles and amphibians but a recently expired bat found in the ladies loo of the talk venue became the centre of attention for a short while. Brown long-eared bats are the most common of the long-eared bats and found in houses, bat boxes and trees across the British Isles (its grey cousin found almost exclusively on the Isle of Wight). Their echolocation calls are very quiet and so they need large ears to pick up returning echoes.

    Roger, Brilliant post together with the previous. It should get some response from the blogger community. I think everyone should know that the fingers in the photo belong to the chairman of the hol group!
