Here’s one of my many wise sayings …
“It’s always a good idea to investigate unusual poo”
You want to be sure that you don’t mind sharing your house or garden with whatever expelled it. So when I noticed some new poo at the base of my garden umbrella, I did just that. I very carefully wound the umbrella open a few turns and stuck my head slowly up inside the folds. There to my surprise I discovered a family of microbats.
I’ve heard of microbats and I know they live in the Bellinger Valley but I’ve never seen one before. They are about the size of a large mouse, they have the most fearsome little faces (and teeth!), and they were not at all happy with me trying to take their photo.
Now this discovery poses a bit of a problem – microbats are classified as vulnerable due to loss of habitat and feeding grounds. If they have decided that my blue umbrella is their new roosting spot, does this mean I have to buy another garden umbrella ??
One thought on “A micro problem …”
Don’t you dare open your blue umbrella! Those lovely little critters need somewhere to live. And they’ve already worked out you’re a soft touch. . . .
