A Bat, An Unusual Daytime Visitor To The College

The Ancient Corridor

The college receives many visitors on a daily basis, open between 2-5pm in the summer, but today a rather unusual visitor was spotted at the end of an ancient corridor leading to staircase 1 and 2. The visitor, a solitary bat, was found roosting on the outside of the old stone wall above the round window. Believed to be a Pipistrelle, very small, brown fur with a small dog-like face but the team aren't bat experts so could be another one of the 17 species of British bats!

Bat Update, Monday 20th September

The bat is no longer at the end of the corridor and has moved on to another, unknown, roosting spot.
