Lieber Jakob,
hier kommt wie versprochen Baby Casper :)

05/10/-27/10/: the two were here every day.

When I returned from leave they were still here.

07/11/-10/11/: the two were here every day.

11/11/: no sign of them, but we had bad weather the night before (I think they found shelter somewhere else, because the following day they were back again)

12/11/-16/11: the two were here every day.

17/11/-18/11/: no sign of them (again bad weather...)

19/11/-22/11/: the two were here every day.

The Baby is growing nicely & I will still follow up on them!

Cheers Anna

Description from Wikipedia

Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera (/kaɪˈrɒptərə/; from the Greek χείρ - cheir, "hand" and πτερόν - pteron, "wing") whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight. By contrast, other mammals said to fly, such as flying squirrels, gliding possums, and colugos, can only glide for short distances.
