bat netting in a plantation
Day 6, Sunday, July 16 Another night of netting, we have set our nets in a different area in a plantation. About 22 bats within the first half hour so we are overwhelmed and close the nets. As we are removing the last bats it begins to rain. We take the bats down to the house at the park entrance to process them – weights, measurements, identification, wing punch for DNA sample. It ends up being a very late night and we walk back in the rain.
