a batty tale :)

2 bats, bob & wilf, live in the rafters of a derelict barn on an abandoned farm. it's been a bitter cold, frozen few weeks, no little animals are about, so the bats are starving. they take it in turn to search for food each night, but find nothing.

the oldest bat, bob, is getting desperate seeing wilf return with no food, he flies off into the dark.

five minutes later, he returns, his mouth smeared with blood.

"YOU DID IT!" shrieked the young bat, "you found food! where?"

"calm down." bob says

" see the 3rd telegraph pole to the right of the tree?"

"yes! yes!" squeaks wilf. bob sighs,

"well I didn't..."

  • Oh Great, just loved this. Gave me a good laugh. We do have bats flying around here and I am very fond of the little creatures. We have the tiny Pipistrelles and the larger long eared bats and some nights, you can hear them talking to each other as they search for insects. I find them fascinating. LavendarLady x
