10. We’re Bats About Bats – by Ruthie Collins

Can you hear them, flying quick?
Here they come, swooping thick.

Furry, flying little friends, 
zipping fingers, zoom-y bends.

Can you see them in the sky?
Sweeping near the stars, so high.

Midges. Munch. Moths. Crunch.
Yummy, zippy, beastie lunch!

‘Bats about Bats!’ is part of a new series of poems by Ruthie Collins, inspired by biodiversity and the landscape in Norfolk. It was inspired by the hidden bat cave at Cary’s Meadow, where you might find bats such as the Pipistrelle, or the Daubentons Bat – also known as the ‘water bat’.
