Lynne Allbutt: Why we should all be batty about bats - Lynne Allbutt - Wales Online

Bat facts

Bats are not blind. They can also “see” in the dark by listening to the echoes of their high frequency calls. With this sophisticated sonar system, called “echolocation” they can pick up insects as tiny as mosquitoes.

Bats’ wings are giant hands, with skin stretching between elongated fingers.

Bats can live for up to 30 years.

In Britain it is illegal to disturb bats or the places where they roost. I always remember when I was a child, Mum and Dad found they had bats in the attic and contacted the Bat Conservation Trust to find out relevant information.
