Still Waters Posted January 22 #1 Share Posted January 22 (IP: Staff) · A bat which was thought to be extinct in the UK has been found hibernating in a disused railway tunnel. In 1992, the greater mouse-eared was declared extinct in the UK, but in 2002 a single male was found in a network of tunnels in West Sussex, where it has been known to hibernate for the last 20 years. A second bat was found in those same tunnels earlier in January. The Sussex Bat Group said the find was a "hugely important discovery". https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-64346827 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
