The birthday week involved a lot of excursions, fun and six locations!
We went and did our PADI Open Water scuba diving course at Lake Malawi. I have been wanting to do this for years so very happy to get to do it in Malawi and with friends.
So the African Bat Conservation Team are all finally out of quarantine and I am free of malaria so finally time to get back on track at our new base and get out on some bat surveys!
Daniel and Bridget arrived this week from the Bat Conservation and Research Unit in the UK for a scoping trip with African Bat Conservation. I was super excited to have them hear as I was working with them both in England!
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!
