Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

The bat box
No, this is not a Batman gadget (and although Batman is my favourite superhero I always thought his gadgets had such stupid names). It is a house for bats, bought by my father-in-law to give a proper home to the bats that dwell in his garden and sometimes under his roof. You can read more about bat boxes here. We have bats here too, I consider them neighbours, although very elusive ones. I wish we could place bat boxes here too, maybe the bats would not be so elusive. I mentioned a number of times on this blog why I love bats: its popular association with vampires and of course Batman and because they are shy creatures of the night that bring character to a garden. So I really wish we could have a bat box or two here.
