Now this will make someone smile!

Yesterday it was suggested that I move on to taking photos of bats. In the famous words of all Blue Peter's one I did earlier!

Its a group of old bats that I found at the end of term during the big clear out at school .

Thanks for looking.

This is so clever. I see these bats have really been banging up the runs, nice and old. Wonder if these bats could catch a cricket?
