If you find a bat on the ground, on an outside wall during the day, or in exposed area where it may be vulnerable; it needs assessing and probably taking into care.
If you have a pet that brings in a bat, the bat will need urgent medical attention even if it does not look injured or hurt.
In both these cases the bat should be contained in a box and you should call us, Surrey Bat Rescue on 07910108525 (if you are in Surrey obviously) or the Bat Conservation Trust's Bat Helpline on 0345 1300 228 for further advice.
