‚ÄúTwilight” the bat was found a few days ago, injured and grounded, by one of our followers. Being a protected animal he wasn’t really sure what to do, so contacted the volunteers of Hereford Bat Rescue, who knew exactly how to help.

Sadly Twilight was too poorly, and ended his days in the warmth and comfort of the Bat Rescue’s care ????

What can you do if you find a grounded or injured bat? ????

???? In the first instance contact the Bat Conservation Trust National Bat Helpline on 0345 1300 228. The helpline will be able to advise on a range of bat-related matters as well as putting you in touch with local bat rehabilitators.

????
