Today when getting back to the house i was greeted by a small black furry creature flying madly around the kitchen in circles. A bat! After ducking several times and crawling along the floor to open the door without being hit, I have decided they're quite cute - which is a good thing bearing in mind there are a large number living in our attic. We have been leaving the loft hatch open to stop the pipes freezing during the cold weather so i can only think it decided to take a different route out.
Here it is.... if anyone knows what variety it is do let us know. (If you have a bat-phobia look away now)
