We also accidentally woke up this chap . . . .
What to do? We had removed his winter sleeping quarters.
Now you see him . . .
. . . now you don’t!
We moved him outside into the sun on to a honeysuckle box hedge . . .
. . . where he woke up and then flew away.
Hopefully, it’s mild enough here in Ilfracombe, North Devon for him to survive. Apparently, they live for up to a year.
