Today a visit to Burn O Vat to see the water and granite – ground hole that it is. Difficult to know how long the graffiti has been there, granite is so hard. Back at the visitor centre what looked to be a heavy sycamore seed twirled down to the ground and it was a bat. Brown long-eared perhaps? Rabies in bats is rare but it seemed ill and needed to be moved from the path of labradors in search of a snack. He climbed on quite happily, fingers crossed it was a bad bug. Meanwhile the whippet got bored and struck an athletic pose. Impressive. Popped back later in the loan car. A great day.
