Barbastelle bats emerging

Three barbastelle bats squeeze out of a crack...
The tree in the video has a long vertical crack in it. This tree had been used as a barbastelle roost several years earlier and was being monitored to see if the bats were still using it. Barbastelle bats (5 minimum) stayed for 3 days.

This video shows 3 of them crawling about in the crack then squeezing out. A fourth can be seen still in the crack.

The video was filmed with a 1000TVL analogue CCTv camera. with a single channle recorder. Power was supplied with lithium batteries.
