Bats "showering" parishioners with faeces and urine at a Norfolk church appear to have "more rights that the worshipping community", a vicar said.

A 300-strong colony of Natterer's bats roost in the roof of St Andrew's Church in Holme Hale but cannot be removed as they are a protected species.

Rev Stephen Thorp said the bats are "off-putting" and have made couples look elsewhere for their wedding.

The obvious answer is to install bat houses on the outside of the building and then seal all of thier entrances into the building.  It's amazing how many bats will move in to one of these.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

The bats at my house never liked the bat houses put up for them. I don't know why--they had the correct location, drop zone height, all that stuff.

Also, how many articles are going to be tagged "bat excrement"? :huh:

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?
