Bats, moons and books!

Hello all,
Sorry it's been somewhat of a while, but here is a new post...
First off, bats. Every night (until about two days ago, possibly hibernation...) we've been seeing bats flying past between 6:30pm and 8pm. However, this is the first time me or any of my family have seen them here, and there are lots, and lots. Would there be such a sudden influx? Also, apart from a church about a mile away, there is nowhere for them to hibernate in the winter and stay during the day. A mystery indeed? Any ideas...

Next, although it was a while ago, there was the lunar eclipse. I'd love to see your photos, and I was surprised to find that some of mine were OK, because my camera isn't anything that special (sony cybershot digital). It was a great view (at 3 in the morning) and was worth the getting up.

Finally, the other day, I purchased a great new book: Why do robins have red breasts?
This book, answered by Martin Hughes-Games, answers the best questions asked by viewers of Springwatch, autumnwatch and winterwatch BBC production. It's a worthwhile read  that will give you the answers to your questions.

So that's it until next time, where there should be some photos of more starling remains (probably from the same bird as the skull).

George
