A Wayward Waffle!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week! I know things have been stressful due to the coronavirus, but hopefully everyone is doing well.

With all the stress of the virus, it’s nice to hear some good news. This week, I have some news about the rescue of a little Nathusius’ pipistrelle bat. He was found sleeping between planks of wood in a timber store in Shepton Mallet, England. The good news is that he was in good condition when he was found. He has been nicknamed Waffle. Like the rest of the world, he will remain in quarantine until rehabbers can release him into the wild. They aren’t quite sure where to release him though, because the owner of the timber store says he was found in wood that had come in a shipment from Belgium. Hopefully wherever Waffle is released, he will make lots of friends.
