It’s been two years since we needed to get the trailer near to the pig run – we didn’t keep pigs last year, and when we brought in this year’s weaners they were small enough to carry. But the time approaches and, of course, a huge amount of debris has accumulated in the way.
When we were moving a load of old doors and wood, we obviously disturbed this bat, who shot out and rehung on the meal shed wall. He was on about 1.5 inches long – and there were bigger slugs lurking in the same area (yes really!). With the cats hanging around we ignored the bat, save taking this photo, and took the hunters away and when we came back, he had flittered off into the night.
