I have a favourite old coat for keeping warm when I'm riding the mowers on a cold day. It hangs outside the back door on the outside wall of the cat cage. With some fairways to be cut this morning, I went to put the coat on and found that another creature had discovered that it's a great coat for keeping out the cold wind.
I don't know my bats very well, someone might be able to ID it from the pictures, perhaps the Lesser Long-eared Bat?
I took a few shots and decided to re-locate it to one of the bat boxes on the side of the woodshed.
I picked up the bat carefully, collected the steps so I could reach the box, opened the lid to discover that the inn was full - well partially so.
There are four boxes erected in and around the woodshed, so I put the little 'coat bat' in the box just inside the shed. I'll keep an eye on it for a day or two.
