There’s a very blurry video of my second encounter with the creepy creature below (and they give me the willies).
Anyway, after escorting panicking female to safety (duvet over both of us as we crawled to safety), bat was captured and after a quick conversation with the “bat people”, (thank god for Yellow Pages), bat was released at dusk and flew off to tell tales of adventure and hardship to his (or her) chums.
Anyway, I’ve known for ages we have bats in the trees around here, so with a morning to kill, I decided to breadboard a simple bat detector. I’ll give it a whirl tonight and see what it can detect.
If anybody's interested, I'll post construction details.
