Battime

This is a blog dedicated entirely to bats. New posts are added at various times.
In post-free periods feel free to explore battime!
If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to use the ask box.
None of the photos belong to me unless said otherwise.
Please do not disturb bats, they are wild animals and should be left in peace
