Many of us venture out in the evening to experience the wonder of bats in their natural environment.
Today's post looks at the 17 species of bat here in the UK plus the Greater mouse-eared bat (Myotis myotis) which was officially declared extinct in 1990, but a solitary individual has been hibernating in southern England since 2002.
