Peter Cornish was the speaker on Monday 27th January, his talk entitled Bats in Focus. Peter, who is from Gainsborough, brought expert knowledge on the theme, and his credentials include being a registered bat carer and voluntary bat worker.
Using many slides with photographs and illustrations, he explained something of the fact and fiction about bats. First, they are not blind. In addition, members heard that here are 1,100 species of bat in the UK. Peter described various aspects of the habits of bats as well as an outline of the protected status they have been granted.
