Too wet for bats, says Somerset Wildlife Trust
7:20am Wednesday 12th September 2012 in Bridgwater Area News
WET weather has had a negative effect on bats, according to the Somerset Wildlife Trust.
Rain prevented insects from flying and has delayed bats having their young.
Females which could not eat enough to provide milk for their babies are abandoning them or starving themselves.
If a bat is found near the roost, keep it warm and call the RSPCA.
