Bat Adventures Are Back!

And we’re bat! {see what I did there?} That’s right! Batastic!

We went on our first official Bat Adventure on Sunday, May 23rd, but due to the amount of fire works there wasn’t any action. My heart breaks for all animals when the fireworks go off. I’ve never liked fireworks and in my opinion they should be banned. 😦

As with every bat adventure blog post, I will be posting with the dates that we were out and I will be adding sightings to the map (link below). Once it is safe to do so, I am hoping to bring friends along. I will do weekly posts that will run from Monday (posting the previous week on the Monday) to Sunday and will be starting my regular posts next week.

We’ve got bat action!!!

We went out for our second night of bat adventures and saw some of those flying beauties tonight. Last night we didn’t see anything, but that was due to the firecrackers.

There was a lot of action near Ravina Park and in the field beside Humberside Colligate. Hearing the chirping noises on my bat detector made me incredibly happy.

May 26 to May 29th – I won’t be able to go on any bat adventures. If we end up going out Sunday night, I will add it to next weeks adventures.

Each time I post, I am going to also suggest music that goes with bat adventures! Today I’m suggesting:

Everything that Theadora Feu Follet does on her theremin! She is the spookiest of them all afterall. You can follow her on YouTube (video below) and on IG at Thea Munster, and her band Night Chill. She is also on TikTok as Thea Triffid. Thea has inspired me to learn the Theremin, I just need to save up to buy one. Unless, someone wants to gift me one. My birthday is coming soon!

Type of bats: Big Brown Bats
No. Mosquito bites: 0

Here is a link I’ve created to all of our bat sightings.

Important: Do not handle bats. They can carry the rabies virus. Only those who have been properly vaccinated and have knowledge of bats should be handling them. If you find a bat in your home call a bat rescue. Do not call an exterminator, call a rescue. Bats are important for our environment. I have links below for rescues.
