At North Devon Bat Care we have a dedicated bat care and rehabilitation space, featuring both inside and outside facilities.
Baby Bat Season 2020 is due to start soon. Female bats are heavily pregnant with their single baby and are easy pray to cats right now. Keeping your cat in at night is one of the biggest things you can do to help right now.
A bat found during the day time (inside or outside) is usually a sign that something is wrong with the bat. It may be as simple as being misplaced due to disturbance, or as serious as being critically injured by a preditor, either way they shouldn't be visable during the day so need help.
