The following morning, a second treat. It was about 7.40, the sky was already light, the sun on the horizon. I was standing on a terrace above the house thinking sleepily about my next task when I noticed a bat flapping around the house guttering. Surprised the bat should be out so 'late' and delighted that I might have a chance to watch it return to its home in the bat box, I fixed my gaze on it as it flapped over the roof.
