We see all sorts of animals, of all sorts of shapes and sizes.

Last week a pipistrelle bat was found in St Martins and brought into the GSPCA.

After two nights of care and a full health check ‘Coca Cola’ as the female bat was called was able to be returned back to the wild.

Beckie Bailey GSPCA Animal Care Assistant and Bat Volunteer said “The bat that was rescued last week was a female.”

“She had old scares on her wings, that thankfully had all healed but that’s what the white marks were.”

On Sunday evening a Pipistrelle Bat was rescued from a cat by a kind caring member of public who many may know as it was Corinne Connolly who runs many fund raisers for the GSPCA including the upcoming Sidney’s Sponsored Events Back to the 40’s event with UK Act Jill Daniels on Saturday 10th November 2018.

What to do if you fiind a bat?

Today we had our first bat of the year brought into the Shelter.  Thankfully there was nothing wrong with the little mammal that we could find. The bat was found by a caring builder who discovered it during his day when removing a sign.

This time of year bats are hibernating to save energy during the winter months.

Guernsey has a number of bats and the dense housing population affords many roost sites, particularly fascia boards over rough granite for pipistrelles and barns for all species.
