East Sussex WRAS were called out to a bat hiding behind a shop sign in Hailsham High Street. Shoppers watch WRAS rescuers as they used a ladder to climb up to the sign above the shop windows to rescue the poor creature.
Rescuer Trevor Weeks was able to safely wrap the juvenile bat up into a tissue before climbing down to waiting fellow rescuers.
The bat was underweight and thought to be a juvenile caught out by the weather and cold nights.
The bat was taken to Jenny Clark at the Sussex Bat Hospital for specialist care and attention.
Thank you to Taylor Engley staff for calling out WRAS and monitoring it till rescuers arrived.Share this!
