The BBC has a story about bat, suffering from hunger, who are out foraging in daylight:
Mrs Youngman, who will travel from central Scotland to lead a bats workshop in Strathpeffer Community Centre, near Dingwall, on Thursday, said the first bats of the season were emerging from hibernation.
She said: “Down here in the central belt people have found grounded bats which were very weak and very hungry.
“This may be a reflection of last summer and juveniles not getting enough food to build up fat to survive through hibernation.”
It gets worse:
In day time bats run the risk of falling prey to other animals and it has been known for them to be mobbed and eaten by crows.
