Next time please please phone BCT or your local bat group

Please bear in mind for next time (if there is a next time) that there are many volunteer bat carers in the UK who are willing to take in injured bats. Go to www.bats.org.uk or phone 0845 1300 228 next time you find a bat like this and help and advice will be given.
It sounds like this bat would probably have died anyway but had it been taken into care straight away at least it would have been given the best chance of survival :/
