These last few weeks have been exciting for the bat team as we have been attempting to capture and radio tag slit faced bats. One of my favourite species here!
The humane exclusion part of work is something I am obviously not a huge fan though it is a better option than inhumane exclusions which often occur in places like Malawi.
Whilst in Salima we are flat out doing roost visits, emergence surveys and even some hand netting to help identify species. We are very thankful to stay at the Kumbali Lakeside Retreat and we are also treated to some canoes one morning which makes for a great start to the day!
Me, Tom, Dom and Patrick took a trip to Ngala Hill on our day off to go and climb the mountain (it felt like one!) which is just outside of Lilongwe and had beautiful views up at the top! I wasn't so sure I would make it though...
