BBC True North – The Bat Catchers

Karen test flying a rescued Brown Long Eared Bat

Our bat care programme will feature on BBC 1 True North on Monday 21st January @ 10.40pm and Tuesday 22nd January on BBC 2 @10pm

Bat-crazy volunteers Robin and Karen are on call 24/7 to save their favourite flying mammals. With a small team of volunteer ambulance drivers, they patrol the country rescuing bats from the most unlikely places. They have turned their homes into bat hospitals, and their living rooms into test-flight runways draped in nets and sheets. All in aid of getting these little mammals fit to be released back into the wild.
