Rescue

Have you ever seen a baby bat before?!

This tiny little youngster (seriously, he's only 2cm long!) is a juvenile pipistrelle, and he needed a little help after being found alone on a pathway. At this age, young bats should still be clinging to their mother, so he was definitely not having a good day!

Rehabilitation

Arriving cold and quite dehydrated, he was gently warmed (a vital step before rehydration or feeding) before being given Oralade oral rehydration solution to correct his dehydration.

Once a little more stable this little youngster was transferred into the capable hands of Steve from Surrey Bat Rescue who will give him the best possible chance!
